The doctoral curriculum consists of a taught component and supervised individual research. It is designed to be completed in four years.

  • During the first year, students dedicate 100% of their time to course and seminar attendance.
  • In the second year, students dedicate only 40% of their time to training and the remaining time to research.
  • In their third and final year, student dedicate almost all their time to research – 80% - along with the attendance of specific workshops, summer schools or seminars related to their research project.

In addition, various events related to research, such as courses, seminars, and meetings, are organized throughout the academic year in collaboration with other PhD courses at the University and external partners.

The training of the doctoral student is completed by a mandatory period of study and research at a foreign university or research center.
