Profile for admission
Those who are interested in enrolling on the Interuniversity Doctoral Programme in Neurosciences must have studied at least a degree course in the field of Biomedicine, Sciences or Engineering (Biology, Biotechnology, Pharmacy, Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Veterinary studies, Physics, Mathematics, Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering or Chemical Engineering) and an official master’s research degree that is potentially related to the aforementioned degree courses.
The student will need to have a strong vocational drive, as once the course has started, they will need to complete their training in this field that has huge scientific-professional interest and which offers the possibility of highly specialised employment. An individual interview, either in person or by video-conference, will be an essential tool to establish the candidates’ level of motivation and their qualities. Likewise, the candidates will be required to have a verified good level of English both for reading specialist literature and for understanding the activities that form part of this programme.

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.
