The whole Eu2P PhD curriculum covers 3 consecutive years, for a total of 180 ECTS credits, including 120 credits gained progressively researching and writing a thesis (3 years x 40 ECTS credits) and 60 credits for secondary PhD portfolio activities carried out at any given moment during the research period.
See curriculum details for further information.
A supervision team related to one of the Eu2P Academic partners to follow the PhD trainee in order to carry out the advanced project research and the portfolio activities. These activities are detailed in a personalized annual report called the doctoral study plan.
The PhD thesis does not carry any credits associated with it. It is only after 3 years of active and successful research activities (as validated by the supervisors in the different institutions) that the trainee is envisaging the thesis defence, after approval by the Doctoral Board. After a successful oral defence, the trainee is declared eligible for the award of the PhD degree.
The Doctoral Board selects and follows the PhD student.
The Doctoral Board is the only competent body to assess the application eligibility including applicants' previous education, work and research experience, prerequisites' compliance, statement of motivation, and specific request such as part-time completion.
See PhD Registration for further details.
