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
In addition to the cross-disciplinary training activities, the doctoral programme includes a series of specific training activities (some optional and some compulsory).
The specific activities for the doctoral programme in Oenology and Biotechnology are as follows:
- Seminars in oenology and biotechnology.
- Preparation and development of projects.
- Development of biotechnology-based oenology companies.
- An advanced course in sensory analysis and sensometrics.
- An advanced course in molecular techniques.
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.
