About Us

The Doctorate Direction is a unit of the Vice-Presidency of Research, responsible for integrating the University’s 36 doctoral programs. It is formed by an interdisciplinary team that works together with the direction of the programs to ensure the quality of the academic training offered, among other things.

Our mission is to make sure that we offer top quality programs, promote policies and mechanisms to facilitate curricular flexibility, interdisciplinary studies and the internationalization of doctoral training. Furthermore, we provide guidance to students, scholarships, financial support and encourage the development of transversal skills. We also encourage students to participate actively in the University and the interaction between the different doctoral programs.
