PhD Thesis | Doctoral education

In the framework for postgraduate studies within the EHEA, the students that would like to develop the PhD courses, need to have a minimum of 300 ECTS credits of undergraduate and master programmes completed.

ACHUCARRO contributes and fosters the Doctoral Programme in Neurosciences of the UPV/EHU.


This PhD is awarded the Mention to Excellence by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

Apart from the specific training programme in state of the art neuroscience; the art of designing of suitable experimental approaches, by integrating the knowledge acquired during the theoretical training; and solving of problems related to research work to develop the necessary strategies and following the scientific method, these PhD courses also try to provide complementary training which is fundamental for almost any professional, and even more for researchers, such as dissemination of results of the research work in the form of communications to congresses or research papers in fields of reference within the area of Neuroscience; development of autodidacticism in the need of continuous upgrading of professional competence; and developing the capacity of group work and oral and written skills for the proper dissemination of the results obtained using different technical means.

Students that successfully completed the Master in Neuroscience have direct access to this PhD programme.
