Students with university studies equivalent to 180 ECTS credits (diplomas) must obtain at least 120 credits of an official master's degree to qualify for entrance to the doctoral programme. Students with university studies equivalent to 240 ECTS credits (bachelor's degrees or pre-EHEA degrees) must obtain at least 60 credits of an official master's degree.
