In addition to your thesis research, you must take part in a customized study program and obtain 2 ECTS (1 ECTS is equivalent to 25-30 hours, including contact hours, preparation, homework, etc.). The objective is to improve your knowledge and competencies in the field of research.
What do you we mean with a "customized study program"? How to get ECTS credits?
- Share your thesis research with peers & develop your scientific communication skills: Take part in national or international conferences (with an oral or poster communication as first author) and/or present your thesis results orally in front of a public of advanced researchers outside your department.
- Enhance your scientific knowledge: Follow colloques and accredited seminars (within your discipline or wider) .
- Acquire new skills: Take part in PhD level courses useful for your thesis research.
The doctoral candidate & the thesis director meet and agree about the activities that will be part of the portfolio.
