Research formation. Cross curricular activities:
The Doctorate School, in compliance with the art. 9.4 of the R.D. 99/2011 28th January, offers cross curricular activities aiming at the research training and academic fulfilment of doctoral candidates. There are six units of activities which take place from January to June and the application deadline finishes on 8th January. Each unit consists of 15 to 20 hours of formation, some of which can be realized online:
- “Strategies in Doctoral Research and Formation in the University of Burgos”
- “Knowledge and innovation transfer”
- “Bibliographic and authorship information. Databases. Journals and publications quality indexes. Open publication”
- “Quantitative data treatment”
- “Expression of the scientific activity”
- “Research 2.0: Online possibilities in the research diffusion”
The activities are annual and cyclic, so the doctoral candidates, according to his Document of Activities, can organise and realise the cross curricular activities in a fragmented way. These activities must be included in the “Annual evaluation and monitoring report” of the tutor and/or thesis director, as well as the “Annual evaluation report of the Academic Commission” of the Doctorate Program. These activities, which are free of charge, can be validated according to the “Requirements and Procedures of Validation” report.

The doctoral candidates are asked to prove at least a B1 level of English or other languages commonly used in the scientific communication field of knowledge at the moment of the thesis defence. Students who cannot prove this level can enrol in the formation offered by the Doctorate School and coordinated by the Centre of Modern Languages of the University of Burgos. This formation consists of 100 hours of classes (free of charge if the doctoral candidates pass the final exam) divided in two levels (B1 and B2) according to the level of the student.
The Doctorate School also offers the possibility to realise an exam to certify at least the B1 level. If the students satisfactorily pass the exam, the Doctorate School will pay for the expenses. For more information in Spanish, please click here.
