Legal information on doctoral programmes

According to Organic Law 4/2007, of 12 April, which modifies Organic Law 6/2001, of 21 December, on Universities, Spanish university education is structured in three cycles: bachelor's degree, master's degree and doctorate.

Successful completion of a doctoral programme (which corresponds to the third cycle) leads to the award of an official doctoral degree, which has full validity throughout Spain. Please refer to the following link for more information on the evolution of doctoral studies:

A doctorate is an official third-cycle degree designed to equip candidates with the skills and competences necessary to conduct high-quality scientific research. For its part, a doctoral programme is a set of activities that lead to the acquisition of the competences and skills required to obtain a doctoral degree. The purpose of these programmes is to help develop the training of doctoral students as well as to establish the procedures and lines of research for the completion of doctoral theses.

The University of Granada currently offers 25 doctoral programmes adapted to the European Higher Education Area.

Official doctoral programmes are currently regulated by Royal Decree 99/2011 of 28 January (BOE: 10 February 2011).

At its meeting on 2 May 2012, the Governing Council of the University of Granada approved the new UGR Regulations on Official Doctoral Studies and Doctoral Degree Certificates.
