Center for Doctoral Studies


All of the faculty's doctoral candidates have to participate in the CDS programme.

What does participation in the CDS programme mean for you? It means you have to earn 180 credits from the time when you are accepted for a post-graduate programme to the initiation of the doctoral procedure. You are awarded 150 credits for the submission of a thesis, 15 credits for basic academic activities and 15 credits for advanced academic activities.
