3.13.7 Language and Communication Module

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.
