In principle, it is therefore possible to access the Program from any degree and area (having completed 300 credits, from among the Bachelor's or Graduate and Master's studies). However, the different admission profiles require that, as a rule of admission to the Program, the following instructions must be taken into account (from which the training commitment will be drawn up):
- Students who have completed their Bachelor's or Master's degree in Philosophy, Humanities or Social Anthropology at any of the participating universities, as well as all those who have completed their Bachelor's or Master's degree in Philosophy at any Spanish university, in any other university in the European Higher Education Area, or in another with equivalent studies, following recognition of this by the Doctorate’s Academic Committee.
- Notwithstanding that agreed in the previous point, those who access the Program from the Master's Degree in Secondary Education (with a specialty in Philosophy) must carry out a work equivalent to Master’s Final Projects in one of the University Research Master's degrees offered by the different universities in the Program. This work may be directed by the same director and/or tutor of the Doctoral Thesis and will be defended (according to the regulations of those works) prior to the reading and defense of the Thesis.
- Those who want to access the Program without having completed a Research Degree or Master’s in Philosophy or the Humanities must show that the doctoral thesis they intend to carry out is consistent with the academic and research training they have received. It will be the Program’s Academic Committee (through an interview and a previous report from the doctoral student) who will judge the consistency. If it is considered inconsistent, an appropriate training supplement would be required (always with the agreement of the director and/or tutor), which may consist of taking certain subjects from the Master's degrees offered by the universities participating in the Program during the first year and that, in any event, would involve the completion and defense of a Master's Final Project (TFM) during the first year of the Doctorate. The supervision of these works will be carried out by the director of the Doctoral Thesis.
