Profile for admission
The ideal profile for people who are interested in enrolling on the Doctoral Programme in Biomedical Research is those who have completed at least one degree in the area of Biomedicine, Science or Engineering (Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Biomedical Sciences, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Medicine, Chemistry, Mathematics, Veterinary Studies, Computer Engineering) and an official master's research degree related to the aforementioned degree qualifications.
The languages used in the programme are Spanish and English, so a basic level of both will be required (Spanish in the case of foreign students, and English for all students). Candidates to be research personnel in training on the Biomedical Research programme must have a level of English that will enable them to read and understand, and to undertake the programmed activities (a level equivalent to B2 is recommended).

Matricula Procedimiento Asignacion - Común
Once a student has been accepted onto the doctoral programme, the Academic Commission will assign them a tutor from among the faculty at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) participating in the programme, who will then be responsible for ensuring good interaction with the Academic Commission and adapting the training and research activities to the principles established by the programme and the Doctorate School.
Within three months of enrolment, the Academic Commission will assign each student a thesis director from among the faculty participating in the programme. The director may or may or not be the same person as the tutor, and will be responsible for guiding and ensuring the consistency of the training and research tasks, and guaranteeing that the topic of the thesis have an impact and make a novel contribution to the field. They are also responsible for guiding the thesis plan and adapting it, if required, to other projects and activities in which the PhD student is involved.
If the director is not a member of the faculty at the UPV/EHU, the tutor will act as a liaison.
Doctoral theses may also be co-directed, and the second co-director may or may not be a member of the DP. New tutors or directors may be assigned at any moment during the thesis.
