Depending on the student’s profile and the research line the student wishes to pursue in his/her research work, the PhD Program’s Academic Committee, and the tutor assigned to the student, may decide that the student needs to study specific training supplements after analyzing their academic record.
The necessary training supplements for each profile will be agreed by consensus between the program coordinator and the tutor assigned to the student; these will be dependent on the basic training, the doctoral student's entry profile and the research line selected, and will preferably be chosen from among the Master's subjects related to the PhD Program.
The Master’s offered by the five participating universities deepens the recommended admission profile knowledge. For this reason, students who, in accordance with Article 6 of Royal Decree 99/2011, have access to the doctorate, but do not meet any of the requirements specified in A). and B). in section 3.1.2, must complete the Master's in Mathematics subjects, whose generic and specific competencies, in the opinion of the Program’s Academic Committee, are not covered in the student’s previous undergraduate and/or postgraduate training, or pertaining to other Master's studies offered by the universities participating in the Program related to the research line.
The students referred to in cases a), b), c) and d) of point 2, Article 6 of Royal Decree 99/2011, must prove their experience and previous research training with at least one publication (original work) in an indexed scientific journal or, failing that, in scientific journals or conference proceedings published with an ISBN, provided the publication has prestige in its area or selection mechanisms and review accreditation. The Program’s Academic Committee will approve a list of non-indexed journals and conferences that meet these conditions, information that will be published on the Program's website, and will be reviewed at the beginning of each academic year.
In the event that the student cannot provide documentary proof of having the minimum recommended level of any languages necessary to realize the Program, the Academic Committee may assess if the student has sufficient command of the language by conducting a personal interview, and recommend them to take a course that allows the minimum level to be reached.
