What is the difference between the new EHEA Doctoral Programs and the traditional Doctoral Programs?

One of the most important differences is that the new EHEA PhD programs are completely focused on writing and defending the dissertation.

Simply put, the traditional model included both coursework and a research component focused on producing a dissertation. In the new model, however, the first part, coursework, is completed independently in the new official Master programs.

In other words, traditional PhD programs have been adapted so that the teaching takes place during the official Master program, while the new EHEA ^PhD focuses exclusively in writing the dissertation.

UAB pioneers the implementation of the new European Higher Education Area(EHEA) framework. Thus, a number of PhD programs at UAB have already been adapted to the new model, while we continue to work on adapting the rest during the next academic years. On this list you will find  all PhD programs offered by UAB, including both the new EHEA programs and those which have not yet been adapted (marked with an asterisk).
