Training Programme

The Training Programme, issued every year by the Doctoral Programme Committee, contains all the information relevant for the School.

The complete educational curriculum of each student includes:

  • Advanced courses of general Physics
  • Specialised courses on current research
  • Research activity under the supervision of the tutor appointed by the Doctoral School Committee
  • Attendance at research seminars organized by the Department  of Physics on various subjects.

Besides this the doctoral student is encouraged to:

  • attend Summer Schools, meetings and conferences held in Italy or abroad on subjects relevant for the research activity
  • carry out internships  at national or international institutions.
