Complementary skills

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The University of Florence realized, after a year of experimentation, a training of Complementary Skills dedicated to the Doctoral Students in order to answer to the increasing request, in the field of scientific research and on a highly specialized job market, of technical and relational skills (teaching, linguistics, statistics, IT, legislation, etc.). From the XXXIV cycle, students must acquire at least 6 ECTS (or 36 hours total over the three-year period) for participating to these courses.

The offer is varied and articulated: individual modules and cycles of lessons.


There are English language courses and courses on scientific communication in the main exchange languages ​​(French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, English) organised by the CLA.

For each language course, 2 cfu are recognised and a request must be made by your Tutor stating that it is necessary for the purposes of the PhD, the acquisition of a level of knowledge of the foreign language (or Italian for foreigners) higher than that possessed by the PhD student (except for the presentations course). 

"It is emphasized that the recognition of 2 CFUs for any language course, carried out at the request of the tutor indicating the need for the acquisition of a level of knowledge of the foreign language (or Italian language for foreigners), can be made only once in the course in the three-year period. It should be noted that in general, language courses, including those carried out outside the University, may, however, be recognized, for the purpose of achieving the mandatory 6, a maximum of 2 CFUs. "


The choice on the activities can be adapted for any students’ specific formation.
