PhD Courses

Getting Course Credits during your PhD

Courses are a great opportunity to get to know a specific field you may need during your thesis better, or can also be an occasion to simply broaden your horizons, including with “non-hard science” courses.

As a PhD student, you are in any case expected to obtain between 12 to 30 course credits by the end of your thesis depending on your doctoral program, including 4 credits before your candidacy examination.

Getting to know where to go to choose your PhD course is however not always simple. In this page, we tried to gather a complete overview of the different possibilities.
