PhD Courses

Here is a list of all courses offered during the first year of the PhD program (A.Y. 2017/18).

Students must obtain a total of 34 credits within the first academic year and have to discuss a progress report in front of the faculty members within the end of October 2018. The courses are of three types, general (6 credits), advanced (4 credits) and topical (2 credits). Attending the lectures of general courses is strongly suggested.

Note: the starting/ending dates and the schedule of topical and advanced courses are indicative.
