- You can consult the regulations of each university:
In the admission process, the Academic Committee of the programme will assign the student a tutor, who will have to be a professor or a full-time researcher related to the programme. The tutor will be responsible for ensuring the interaction between students and the Academic Committee of the PhD programme.
In the admission process, the Academic Committee will assign each student a thesis supervisor who will have to be a doctor, Spanish or foreigner, with accredited research experience. The thesis supervisor will be responsible for the consistency and appropriateness of the training activities and the impact and novelty of the thesis in its field, as well as the guide in the planning and, if needed, its adequacy to other projects and activities of interest for the PhD students. If the assigned thesis supervisor is linked to the programme and meets the requirements, the tutor and the supervisor will be the same person. The Academic Committee of the PhD programme will be able to assign the student two supervisors, in co-management regime. This is justifiable by academic reasons, such as thematic interdisciplinary or national/international collaboration programmes. This assignment of more than one supervisor may be subsequently revoked, if the Academic Committee believes the co-management programme does not benefit the development of the thesis.
Apart from the common necessary responsibilities for the completion of PhD studies, PhD students must attend the main activities organised by the doctoral programme in which the research is conducted. In particular, students must at least attend to:
- The annual CCiL Conference which inaugurates the academic year.
- The annual CCiL workshop.
- General conferences offered by the PhD programme.
- General conferences of the student’s speciality offered by the programme.
- Speciality seminars.
