Be aware that:

The policy of the Doctoral School for external on-line trainings is the following:


  • The courses must be of quality, of a doctoral level and organized by a recognized entity,
  • The thesis director must support the request, it has to be useful for the thesis research,
  • Trainings must include exams/quizzes (copies of the results must be saved),
  • The approval, equivalence in ECTS and conditions are evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Doctoral School (a maximal number of ECTS for on-line courses will also be set).
