The University of the Azores offers you several doctorate programs in different fields. Our doctorate programs guarantee excellent research conditions in articulation with our research centres.
Doctoral programs last six semesters, providing 180 ECTS credits. They include an original dissertation on a specific field of knowledge, as well as, in some cases, completing a set of courses focused on research skills and specific topics.
Students who approve in the final public exam, based on their dissertation, get a doctoral degree.
