The third year is oriented towards facilitating the completion of the doctoral thesis. In individual cases, this general schedule may vary according to the specific needs of the candidate.

Workshops, e.g. about quantitative and qualitative methods, international events, and summer schools offer opportunities to acquire special skills and general competencies.
