Specific admission criteria of the doctoral programme
In addition to the general documents required for admission, students wishing to enter the doctoral programme in Tourism and Leisure must submit the following specific documents:
- A letter of motivation to the programme coordinator (email@example.com), expressing the reasons why the applicant wishes to pursue this doctoral programme and their interests in carrying out the doctoral thesis.
- A letter/letters of recommendation or reference from research personnel who endorse the merits of the applicant for the doctoral programme in Tourism and Leisure.
- If it sees fit, the admission body for the doctoral degree may assess an application through an interview in person or online.
All applicants for admission to the programme must attend an interview with the programme coordinator and the director of the research line in which they wish to carry out their thesis project. In this interview the programme coordinator and the director of the research line will assess the students' training needs and, if they are admitted, they will agree with them on a plan of action to follow.
The objective of the plan of action is to ensure that the doctoral students progress suitably in the preparation of their thesis project. It will therefore include the specific activities that each doctoral student must carry out in a timely manner to obtain the validation of their thesis project by the Academic Committee of the doctoral programme prior to their admission, as well as any specific additional training activities that they must carry out while they are preparing the thesis after admission.
Merits and assessment criteria
Students will be selected according to the following assessment criteria:
- Average grade of the academic record (40%)
- Specific training in the field of tourism and leisure (25%)
- Research experience in the field of tourism and leisure (20%)
- Personal interview, if considered appropriate (15%)
In addition, this doctoral programme has a structural proposal for collaboration with the University of Quintana Roo, according to which this university undertakes to contribute up to five doctoral students to the URV's programme each year. These students will be tutored, and their research will be supervised, under equivalent conditions.
The academic committee of the Doctoral Programme will decide the bridging courses that each candidate needs to take on the basis of each candidate's previous academic training.
In any case, the bridging courses will be the subjects oriented towards research from the Official Master's Degree in Techniques of Analysis and Innovation currently offered by the URV or from the master's degrees in tourism, if necessary.
