A doctoral student must take at least two seminars or workshops for acquiring generic research, academic and business skills during his or her doctoral studies. Given the need for such skills during the doctoral studies, as well as after its completion, we encourage the students to attend more than the minimal required number of seminars and workshops.
The student may freely chose when to take a seminar or a workshop (there are no restrictions with respect to the programme, so any semester, from I. to VI., is fine). The required number of seminars or workshops must be completed prior to submitting the doctoral thesis for evaluation.
