Doctoral studies are intended to provide advanced training in research techniques. They may include courses, seminars and other research activities and will include the writing and presentation of the corresponding doctoral thesis, consisting of original research work. The completion of these studies will lead to the award of the PhD.
The Doctoral Programme includes a pre-doctoral training period which may be a Master's programme or courses (60 credits) not included in the official Master's study programmes.
The Complutense's own in-house qualifications (master, specialist and expert) are specialized professional studies organized and taught by the University which cover courses not included in the official national curriculum and its awards system.
These courses are intended for postgraduates wishing to complement their professional, scientific, technical or artistic academic training. They cover new research areas with possible professional applications and may also establish collaborative relationships with external institutions and enterprises.
As well as its official degrees and in-house courses, the Complutense University of Madrid also offers Courses for Lifelong Learning in response to the social demand for knowledge updating and the development of personal and professional competencies. These courses are designed for students and others, employed or not, who want to complement their academic, scientific, technical or artistic background, improve their professional skills, embark on a career change, join the labour market and develop related strategies and skills and their personal profile and outlook.
The More Mature Students Programme
The UCM’s More Mature Students Programme was created in 1999 as the result of a collaborative agreement between the University and the Community of Madrid. It aims to bring the university within the reach of Madrid’s senior citizens.
This programme aims to create an academic, scientific and cultural university environment specifically designed for more mature students, to foster their intellectual endeavours and reinforce ideals of interpersonal and intergenerational coexistence and tolerance and to encourage their active participation in today's society.
The UCM Virtual Campus is an extension of the physical University Campus using information and communication technologies. It is designed as a set of computer-based resources available to teachers and students to facilitate their work and to be used as a support tool in the transition to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
The Virtual Campus centres on a course management and teaching content tool. Its main aim is to offer support for face-to-face teaching and learning.
