Admission criteria

Profile for admission

Candidates who wish to enrol on this doctoral programme must provide academic proof that they have completed studies in Chemistry, Physics or similar disciplines.

They should ideally be motivated and interested in studying the behaviour of matter at a microscopic or molecular level, in areas such as the interaction between radiation and matter, molecular spectroscopy or nanostructures.

XSL Content

Depending on the academic careers of the students selected, the Academic Committee may recommend basic training in specific subjects related to the lines of research in the programme, such as laser spectroscopy, computational chemistry or materials science. This training would be directed and supervised by the student's tutor.
The students will be admitted who have a profile of graduate and master studies in chemistry (with emphasis on physical chemistry) or physics. The following criteria will be considered:- Student's record 65% - Affinity of the master with the research lines of the doctorate program 20%- Previous research experience (if any) 5%- Knowledge of English 10%



Matricula Procedimiento Asignacion - Común

Procedure for assigning a faculty member as a doctoral thesis tutor and director

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.
