Specialisation seminars - an opportunity for students to present elements of the Ph.D. thesis to a group of professors specialising in a given discipline and hear comments from them. The aim here is to increase students’ motivation and improve quality of work they deliver.

Individual consultations with supervisors – to provide regular and intensive contact with supervisors. It is crucial that Ph.D. students start intensive work on their dissertation as early as in the first semester and maintain a regular contact with their tutors so as to ensure fast and steady progress.
