CA01 - To cope with contexts in which there is little specific information. 

CA02 - To find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem. 

CA03 - To design, create, develop and carry out innovating projects in your field of knowledge. 

CA04 - To be able to work as a team and as an individual in an international and multidisciplinary context. 

CA05 - To process knowledge, cope with complexity and formulate judgements with limited information. 

CA06 - To criticise and defend solutions intellectually.

Common compulsory transversal training activities

All students will have to do a series of transversal activities; some are common to all doctoral programs whereas others are specific to each individual program. 

Classes are structured into two sessions and will be taught in a computer room (indicated when necessary) during the afternoon schedule with the goal of making it easier for both, full-time and part-time students to attend. 

The vehicular languages will be Spanish and Valencian. 

   The activities are the following: 

  • ACTIVITY 1: Tools for the management and recovery of information. 
  • ACTIVITY 2: Goals and objectives of research
  • ACTIVITY 3: Scientific communication models
  • ACTIVITY 4: Transfer of knowledge models

For more information check the University of Alicante International Doctoral SchooL (Website)

Specific compulsory transversal training activities

The activities are the following:

  • ACTIVITY 1: Seminars related to the doctoral programme's topic
  • ACTIVITY 2: Seminars for doctoral students
  • ACTIVITY 3: Attendance to scientific meetings
  • ACTIVITY 4: Mobility

 Optional transversal training activity

The activities are the following:

  • ACTIVITY 1: Stays at Universities and Higher Research Centres.

1. To be admitted in a doctoral program at the University of Alicante, it is necessary to fill in an electronic pre-registration form, available annually on the EDUA website.

2. Before starting the pre-registration process, it is advisable to consult the website of the chosen doctoral program in order to know the admission requirements demanded by the program.

3. The Academic Commissions (AC) are in charge of the admission process in the different doctoral programs.

4. The academic commissions decide annually the offer of places in every doctoral program according to the preconditions established in its Verified Memory. The commission may determine not to offer places when not having directors or tutors at any research line.

5. If the resolution is of “no admission”, in the computer application the reasons for the same will be detailed, having a calendar month to formulate an appeal before the AC; from the date of the resolution.



1. In parallel with the admission process carried out by the AC, the Doctoral School (EDUA) verifies that the documentation provided is the one requested in the pre-registration form.

2. Applicants with higher studies attained in countries different from the EHEA*, at the moment of pre-registration process should pay an administrative fee for the study of their documentation, (equivalence study). The price of the rate is fixed annually by the Government of the Generalitat Valencia, by Decree.

3. People who do not provide the documentation in the terms required in the access process, may rectify this incident within 15 calendar days, from EDUA communication or, exceptionally, within the period determined by EDUA according to the concurrent circumstances.

4. When the incidents detected have not been resolved in the form and time determined by EDUA, the originated file academic record will be closed, without further processing.

5. The Doctorate School will proceed to open academic records to those who have been admitted by the AC and have correctly provided the required documentation, sending them an email with instructions to complete the enrolment process.

When the result is "no admission" it is possible to consult the grounds in the available electronic application. It is possible to raise administrative appeal (recurso de alzada) against AC resolution, within a month since resolution date.
