The content of the Doctoral Education programme is something you will discuss with your supervisory team, who will be responsible for both the content and the quality of the programme. Once a year, the School looks at your Doctoral Education progress in DMA to check that all the courses you have followed are in conformance with the regulations, are in the right category, have a certificate up-loaded in DMA, etc. You will receive an email if we have any remarks or questions.
As a reminder
- When following MSc courses: 1 ECTS = 1 GS credit (exam must be passed)
- Courses offered by research schools or other courses at the PhD level: 1 day (8–12 hrs) = 1 GS credit.
- There is a limit of 5 GS credits for each course (this applies to all courses, even summer schools).
- You can obtain a maximum of 10 GS credits via online learning.
We are aware that it takes effort to compose a solid curriculum, particularly in the ‘discipline-related skills’ category. Workshops and seminars may therefore be registered in this category. Keep in mind the following binding criteria:
- Such a workshop/ seminar isn’t analogous to following a lecture. Your course attendance form should indicate in which way you contributed to the session. Did you give a presentation? Prepared a part? In short: in which ways were you actively involved?
- A maximum of 4 GS credits can be earned by attending workshops and seminars.
