Access Profile and Admission Criteria

Access requirements

1. In accordance with what established in article 6 of Royal Decree 99/2011, of January 28, in general, in order to access an official doctoral program, the student will be required to be in possession of the official Spanish Bacherlor’s and Master’s degrees, or equivalent.

2. In addition, students who are in any of the following cases may also access:

a. Have an official Spanish university degree, or of another country belonging to the European Higher Education Area, giving access to a Master’s programme and have passed a minimum of 300 ECTS of official university studies, of which, at least 60, must be at Master's level.

b. Have an official Spanish Graduate Diploma consisting of at least 300 ECTS, as established by the EU law. These graduates must compulsorily complete the training supplements referred to in article 7.2 of Royal Decree 99/2011, of January 28, unless the syllabus of the corresponding degree includes credits in research training that are equivalent in training value to research credits in master's programmes.

c. University graduates who, after obtaining a training place in the corresponding test to access specialised health training, have successfully passed at least a two years training in a programme to obtain the official title of one of the specialties in Health Sciences.

d. Have a diploma obtained in accordance with foreign educational systems –no need to have it officially recognised, after the General Doctorate Committee has verified that this certificate accredits a training level equivalent to that of the official Spanish Master's degree and giving access to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. This admission does not imply, in any case, nor the official recognition of student’s previous degrees nor its recognition for purposes others than accessing doctoral education.

e. To be in the possession of another Spanish title of doctor obtained according to previous university regulations and related to the areas of Health Sciences, Experimental Sciences and Enginneering.

 

Admission profile

The Doctoral Program in Physics of Condensed Matter, Nanoscience and Biophysics is oriented to graduates in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Computer Science, Materials Engineering, Environmental Sciences and similar; with a master’s degree related to the doctorate’s specialisation: Physics of condensed matters, biophysics, nanotechnology, photonics and materials sciences.

Students must accredit previous training (at Graduate or Master level) in research work.

Students must have an intermediate/high level of English (i.e.: First Certificate, B2).

In addition to the specific competences related to their research topic, applicants are recommended to have: great work capacity, research vocation, critical spirit, initiative, creativity, ability to argue and communicate, ability to work in a team and willingness to collaborate with other national and foreign teams.
