Cross-disciplinary training activities
The URV offers a range of cross-disciplinary training activities that doctoral students can choose to complement their scientific training.
These activities are common to all doctoral programmes. They broaden the knowledge of students, fostering generic skills and interdisciplinary relations between them.
Specific training activities
- The doctoral students present the progress of their work in the regular seminars held by the research group.
- The doctoral students present their results at national and international conferences. They are invited to perform at least one presentation per year.
- In the course of the doctoral degree, students will write at least one scientific article presenting their results. This article will be submitted for publication in an international journal.
Mobility and scientific exchange activities
The doctoral programme can be taken entirely at the URV, or it can be taken through distance learning if so agreed with the thesis supervisor. However, mobility is an added value to the doctoral training, so it is usually recommended that students undertake a research stay abroad.
If a research stay outside Spain is undertaken for a minimum of three months, and the requirements of Royal Decree 99/2011 are met, the doctoral students may obtain the International Doctor Mention.
