Teaching method

There will be weekly seminar sessions. The doctoral students should prepare each session, reading the recommended materials, participating actively in all the discussions. From a certain point onwards, each doctoral student will outline their own individual publication strategy, together with the professor. The strategy will be put into practice, under the supervision of the professor. Individual progress will be monitored and discussed in the weekly seminars. Evaluation is continuous. At the end of each semester, each doctoral student will be awarded an approved or failing grade, depending on the work done during the semester.
