The Doctoral Thesis: modalities/mentions

The thesis is the original work that completes the training of the PhD candidate as a researcher. Its presentation and defence lead to the doctoral degree being awarded and qualifies the researcher to work independently in the field of R+D+i.

During this period, the "trainee researcher" or doctoral student is trained in skills and abilities that enable them to carry out research. Being awarded the doctoral thesis provides official evidence of the standard achieved in this regard, since it offers original results of the research carried out.

Who can submit a doctoral thesis?

To submit the doctoral thesis for its reading and defence, the student must be enrolled in one of the 29 doctoral programmes offered by the University of Valladolid, and be at least in their second year of enrolment.
