Admission by the Academic Committee

The academic committees of the doctoral programmes will make their decisions on the applications by applying the admission criteria of each programme (included in the verified report), and will authorise enrolment of the doctoral candidates admitted.

If the decision is unfavourable, you may exercise your right of appeal in accordance with Royal Decree 39/2015, of October 1 (BOE of October 2), of the common administrative procedure of public administrations.

If the decision for admission is favourable, the academic committee will:

  • Assign a tutor
  • Assign a thesis supervisor
  • Assign the research lines in which the doctoral thesis is framed (up to two)
  • Establish the doctoral student’s type of dedication (either full-time or part-time)
  • Establish, if applicable, the mandatory additional training that the student must complete, in accordance with the provisions of article 7.2 of RD 99/2011 regulating official doctoral studies

The additional training or further courses shall preferably be taken as part of the training activities of the official university master’s degrees.

Enrolment in further training and courses will be made at the same time as first-year enrolment in the doctoral programme. However, if at that moment they have already started or have already been taught, the student may enrol in them in the second year. Whatever the case, these further courses must be passed within a maximum period of one academic year and always before the beginning of the third academic year, both for full-time and part-time students. If these further courses are not completed, the doctoral student will be permanently withdrawn from the doctoral programme.
