390011 SE PhD-VCEE: Seminar in Experimental Economics (2019W)

Continuous assessment of course work

As this course is based on the research seminar of the Vienna Center for Experimental Economics (VCEE) which will be attended by researchers from universities located in Vienna, the number of students that can be admitted for grade and ECTS points purposes is limited.

In accordance with this being a research seminar, preference will be given to PhD students. Note that this seminar is planned to be offered every semester. So in case a student is not admitted for a given semester, a new application will be considered in the next seminar.
