ECTS

  • PhD candidates of the Graduate School of Life Sciences have to follow 20 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) of education.
  • The 20 ECTS load is for the standard 4 years PhD program. PhD candidates that follow a different track can count 5 ECTS/year.
  • The minimum number of PhD years is two, which means that during this two years trajectory 10 ECTS need to be acquired.
  • A minimum of 40% should be spent on courses organized by the CTO program and a maximum of 20% on attendance of congresses and symposia. See tables below for examples.
