The teaching plan for the PhD Course in Chemical, Geological and Environmental Sciences includes intercurricular courses and specific courses for the different curricula. Starting from the 38 th cycle, each PhD student has to attend at least 100 hours of teaching for a total of at least 11 ECTS
(including at least 3 ECTS of interdisciplinary courses to be acquired within the end of the second year, and at least 8 ECTS of intecurricular and/or curricular courses offered by the teaching plan of the doctoral Course in Chemical, Geological and Environmental Sciences, as listed below, to be acquired within the end of the first year).
Each Ph.D. student is expected to spend a period of at least 6 months abroad (12 months in case of collaboration agreements on a double Ph.D. degree), upon authorization of the Teacher Board. Scholarship holders can apply for a 50% increase in the scholarship for the entire duration of their stay abroad.
