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.

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 Doctoral School's webpage.

 Specific compulsory transversal training activities

The activities are the following:

  • ACTIVITY 1: How to finance a research project.
  • ACTIVITY 2: J Seminar (thesis project).
  • ACTIVITY 3: Mobility (Only for those requesting International Doctorate)

Optional transversal training activities

The activities are the following:

  • ACTIVITY 1: How are doctoral programs related to health carried out in other countries?
  • ACTIVITY 2: Sistematic reviews of the scientific literature and meta-analysis.
  • ACTIVITY 3: How to write scientific articles
  • ACTIVITY 4: Quantative information analysis through SPSS.
  • ACTIVITY 5: Qualitative information analysis with a computer.
  • ACTIVITY 6: Mobility
  • ACTIVITY 7: Heuristics, documental organisation and relevant files to the history of nursing. 
  • ACTIVITY 8: Qualitative research in public health: approaches to analysis and practical application.

  • First of all, the person concerned will have to fill in the pre-enrolment form and afterwards, contact the body responsible for the doctoral program in order for them to transmit your desire to enrol to the corresponding Academic Commission (AC). 
  • Once the information has been received, the AC will consider the documentation presented through the pre-enrolment form. 
  • If the person is admitted, the corresponding admission certificate will be issued and sent to the Doctoral School. 
  • If the application is rejected, an admission certificate will be issued which explains the reasons. This certificate will be sent to the Doctoral School which will then inform the person concerned. 


  • Once the favourable admission certificate sent by the AC has been received by the Doctoral School, the process to analyse access requirements will begin. If the access degree does not belong to the EHEA (European Higher Education Area), the student will have to pay a fee for the analysis of their documentation.  
  • If the requirements are met, an academic record will be opened so that the person concerned can fill in their registration
  • If the requirements are not met, the refusal of access and reasons will be communicated. If the person concerned were to hand in the requested documents, the Doctoral School will proceed to open an academic record so that the student can fill in the registration. Otherwise, the record will be archived without further processing.
