As a student of the Research Training Group, you are expected to sign a doctoral agreement, which provides a framework of conditions and activities that you have to fulfill in order to be granted a PhD.

In addition to working in your own doctoral research project, you can choose from a series of activities and lectures, which will help complement your academic and professional skills. Individual participation is recorded through a system of credit points (CP) to help keep track of your progress, with a total number of 24 CP required to finish your PhD. These can be earned in three different categories:

A. Compulsory activities (12 CP)
B. Scientific training (6–12 CP)
C. Complementary training (0–6 CP)
