During the first semester of enrolment, the candidate has to submit a study plan, accumulating the academic credits required for the Design PhD curriculum.
These credits must be acquired via the courses offered by the PhD in Design programme, the courses offered by the PhD School and the activities provided by the educational programme. The number of the credits and the typology of courses vary according to the PhD Cycle, and they are therefore outlined in the specific Kit of the cycle of reference.
For the admission to the final exam, acquisition of the expected credits is mandatory. The third year should be entirely devoted to the development of the thesis.
