Within the language and communication module, doctoral candidates have to demonstrate their skills in the European languages spoken at their selected European partner universities. This module offers two options: If a doctoral candidate does not speak the language fluently, then he/she must attend language classes, which are offered by the partner universities as part of the regular course program. If a doctoral candidate is fluent in the European language spoken at the partner university, then he/she has to give a scientific presentation including discussion in the respective local European language.
On successful completion of this module, 4 crs, viz. 2 crs from each of the two selected universities, are awarded.
