Doctoral training activities

Doctoral candidates must undertake six hundred hours of Doctoral training activities over the course of the programme (three years full-time or five years part-time). These activities can be compulsory or optional, and vary according to each Doctoral programme. The details may be found in the specific documents for each programme (posgrado.uca.es/doctorado).

The table below, endorsed by the Steering Committee, indicates the ‘standard’ hours proposed for each activity; additional information is included in the column ‘Observations’. For further details and clarifications, prospective students must approach the coordinator of the specific Doctoral programme; the email address is available at posgrado.uca.es/doctorado.

This will count as 150 hours instead of 50 because in the documents of the different degrees there is a discrepancy between the value assigned to AF and the text in the field ‘procedimiento de adaptación’
