1 CFU = 6 hours

6 CFU per 1st and 2nd year = 36 hours per 1st and 2nd year

3.5 CFU at the 3rd year = 21 hours at the 3rd year


As of this year, online seminars (TEAMS/ZooM) led by international scholars will be offered to PhD Students - subject to availability. The topics of the seminars will be congruent with the contents of the NeSC PhD. The CFU/hours of each seminar will be communicated to the PhD students and published on the website.

*Each year, the doctoral candidates will be free to invite up to 3 national/international speakers in the domain of their interest. They will be in charge of all aspects concerning the organization of the seminars. Students are also invited to check the courses activated by the University of Trieste for doctoral students (Complementary Skills training) and free online courses (as those offered by Harvard, or Coursera, like https://www.edx.org/course/data-science-r-basics-2)
