ezequiel Posted January 21, 2009 Share Posted January 21, 2009 Hi, I'm still an undergrad (an international one) and I'm thinking about applying to a PhD programme in a canadian or european university. But I have a question, that may seem silly to some, but I'm new to this whole application process thing. I see that a lot of people applied to maybe 15 schools, and what I always wondered was if they had communicated with 15 different potential advisors. When I see an application form, you have to complete it with the thesis topic, advisor, a brief explanation of the project, etc. For all of those who have applied to more than 1 PhD programme, did you contact potential advisors beforehand in each case? Or can you leave that blank, only specify the research area you are interested in and worry about the specific project when you are admitted (and funded!!)? I apologize if this is a stupid question, but nonetheless is an important one for me. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
