The work of the supervisor and co-supervisors will be very important, as they must discuss each chapter with the students, during tutorial and periodic meetings, as well as in meetings with other students of the corresponding Specialized Seminar.

Haverá sempre, contudo, indicações e comentários sobre a bibliografia durante as sessões individuais ou colectivas realizadas com o orientador.
