Complementary training

In the case of students whose master's qualifications are not connected with social work, social services, social policy or social or educational intervention, the academic committee of the interuniversity doctoral degree will stipulate which bridging courses are to be followed. These bridging courses will either be subjects offered by the URV and the other participating universities or specific seminars that are offered to provide candidates with the training they need.
