60h of cross-training activities are compulsory for students registered before year 2015/16, as well as activity I2. Activities I1, I3 and I4 are compulsory in any case. Activity I5 is optional.
The academic committee of the Doctoral Programme will assign a tutor to the applicant (once he or she is admitted).
