Doctoral Activities Document (DAD)

During the development of the thesis, the PhD student has to carry out a series of training activities, which will be recorded in a document of activities of the PhD student (DAD), assessed at the time of the defence of the doctoral thesis. This record is made through the application for the Academic Management of the PhD.

There are two types of training activities: transversal and specific. Each doctoral programme has its own training plan (set out in the so-called verification reports), in which the activities that must be taken, either compulsory or optional, are indicated.

Basically, some are organised by the Doctoral School, the transversal ones, while others depend on each programme, the specific ones.
