Requirements for ESPP students

To ensure active participation, doctoral students officially registered within ESPP are required to obtain a total of 12 credits points over the period of their engagement as a doctoral student (3-4 years) to receive the CUSO ESPP certificate.


Obtaining credits within CUSO ESPP


Credit points are obtained by actively participating in courses and workshops offered by ESPP (minimum 8 credit points) or in equivalent courses offered on CUSO sites (e.g. DPMS) or in other places (see generic skills). Additional credits can be obtained with presentations at international scientific conferences (proof of participation and presentation required). At least 12 credit points must be accumulated during the thesis period to receive the CUSO ESPP certificate.
