Cross-disciplinary training at the School of Doctoral Studies

The School of Doctoral Studies offers a series of cross-disciplinary training courses aimed at providing doctoral students with training that complements their research training.

Students on UdG and joint doctorate programmes who began their studies in 2017-2018 must enrol and pass two compulsory training course credits during their doctoral studies before presenting their doctoral thesis. Enrolling for this is optional for students who began their studies before this time.

How: Enrolments are exclusivelyonline, as are academic supervisions, and carried out within the periods established in the academic calendar for the annual enrolments on the doctoral programme.

Cost: The courses are regulated under the Government of Catalonia’s decree on prices and therefore have a financial cost.

Places: Limited.

Condition: For justifiable reasons only, enrolment can be cancelled or extended (if there are places available).

Deadlines: Only applications for cancelling or extending enrolments on courses that have not started yet will be processed. Applications must be submitted at least 7 calendar days before the start of the course to be cancelled or enrolled on. Enrolments cannot be cancelled or extended where the course has already finished.

How: Doctoral students will need to access the Procedures section in the Virtual Secretary's Office, click on the “go there” button for the “Administration application” procedure, select the application’s area and explain the reason: Extension or cancellation of enrolment on doctoral courses

Cost: The cancellation of enrolment will not entail the reimbursement of the course fee.

Final rating: “Pass” or “Fail”.

Rating “Pass”:

  • You will need to attend 80% or more of the classes (attendance is recorded).
  • You will need to submit a piece of work at the end of course that demonstrates the acquired knowledge and that will be evaluated by the teachers.

Before you enrol, check that the language of the course and the modality fit your interests.

The timetables of all courses can be consulted via the following link: CALENDAR for the courses for Cross-disciplinary Education of the School of Doctoral Studies

You can then check the range of courses available which are grouped into the following 4 blocks.

This course will address the basic concepts of ethical theory, essential for the responsible management of scientific knowledge in current pluralistic, technified societies. The meaning of concepts like 'virtue', 'values', 'duty' and 'responsibility' in the context of the technical system and social networks are analysed using the tools of applied ethics, and new perspectives of the discipline will be introduced.

Doctoral students often have many questions when writing a doctoral thesis in Law. Where do I start? What exactly do I have to do? What must the thesis consist of? What should I read? Where can I find information? Which approach should I use? How do I cite documents? How can I efficiently structure my tasks and manage my time better? Who can help me when I have a question?

This course provides students with basic indications on these and other questions, with the aim of facilitating the often long and complex process of writing a Law thesis.

Access to the Detail of the subject

The publication of research results is an integral part of a researcher’s job. Writing an article is not an easy task, and attempts by novice authors are often thwarted by a lack of a consistent and systematic approach to preparing the manuscript.
This course first introduces the world surrounding the publication of scientific articles (publishers, journals, editors, authors, reviewers, databases, etc.) and the parameters defined to evaluate the quality of journals, researchers and their work (h-index, impact index, etc.).
The course then provides clear guidelines on the organization of the manuscript and the appropriate flow of ideas to convey a scientific message. It also focuses on aspects of language to communicate scientific-technical results efficiently, and thus ensure that manuscripts are accepted and published.

The aim of the course is to educate young researchers so that they can explain their results through cartography. The use of digital cartography makes it possible to represent the study area in which the research is framed in a graphic way, as well as the obtained results.

Maps help researchers to disseminate their research in an illustrative format that can support their oral as well as written communication. Cartographic resources help to synthesise the information in a single format that explains a phenomenon, process or event in a territorial way. Creating maps in this context is a multidisciplinary resource and a basic skill for researchers in very diverse areas.

Leadership and professional development

This model covers 9 key points that must be considered when embarking on a business model. The nine points are: Customer Segments, Value Propositions, Channels, Customer Relationship, Revenue Streams, Key resources, Key Activities, Key Partnerships and Cost Structure. They can be divided into three areas (strategy, marketing plan, and financial plan) but it is very important to deal with the points in a more cross-disciplinary way so as not to lose the customer-oriented perspective.
