Chances of a successful application

What are my chances of getting into a PhD programme?

Your chances for getting into a PhD programme depend on many factors. The most promising applicants have a good or very good master's degree (or equivalent). Other important factors often include your work experience, motivation, and naturally the number and qualification of the other applicants you're competing with.  

Open PhD positions will often attract many applicants, therefore the application process can be highly competitive.
The description of each programme usually gives you a detailed impression of what is expected of the applicants.
