Academic Regulations and doctoral registration for the 2023-2024 academic year  

If you wish to take part in a URV doctoral programme you must submit the following documentation:

On the other hand, for the academic committee to resolve the admission, the candidates should submit the documentation required in the additional criteria for selection and admission to the doctoral programme. Consult the section "admission criteria" of each doctoral programme to find out the specific criteria. In addition to these specific criteria, it is strongly recommended to submit a Support letter from the potential thesis supervisor (in the case of the programme Chemical Science and Technology, use this Support Letter -CiTQ  model).

It is essential that the candidates present this documentation so that, in the first place, it is verified if the previous degree allows access to doctorate studies. If it allows access, it will be the academic committee that decides the admission, which is conditional on compliance with both the general access requirements and the additional selection and admission criteria of each doctoral programme.

The letter of admission for the visa can be downloaded from the document manager after the academic committee has approved the admission, in case of being national of a country not belonging to the European Union.
