Coursework

 

The PhD course in Geosciences has a duration of three years and the degree can be obtained after having acquired at least 30 credits (180 hours) for training through courses, summer schools and attendance at a minimum of 12 seminars during the three years. The PhD student must also carry out independent and original research, culminating in the writing of the thesis. There are compulsory courses that a doctoral student must take, but the student can also independently create, in agreement with his supervisor, his own Individual Training Plan. You can download the complete educational offer and the individual training plan.
