The general entry requirement must be set out in any of the circumstances of article 6 of RD 99/2011 or of the second additional provision of the same RD. 

To conform with the most appropriate entry profile, students must have completed the Master's degree in Tropical Parasitic Diseases of the University of Valencia - General Study (UVEG), or be in possession of the Diploma d'Estudis Avançats (a tertiary education degree), obtained according with the provisions of RD778/98, or have reached the "research proficiency" as regulated by Royal Decree 185/85, always in the field of Parasitology, and especially within the framework of the programmes in "Human and Animal Parasitology" of other RD. In this case, the Doctoral Programme's Academic Committee will apply directly the consideration of the basic criteria for merit assessment, without requiring specific background credits.

Students who have completed other Master’s degrees different to the one stated in the previous point, or even different Doctoral Studies (with or without the DEA or the research proficiency) can also be admitted to the programme, as long as their background education is related to the programme for which the Verifica is being requested. The fields of study that are considered to be related are those that include content relevant to Parasitology, and which are in the field of human health (tropical diseases, infectious diseases, etc.) and animal health (zoonosis, parasitic diseases, etc.)

In these cases, the Doctoral Programme’s Academic Committee will decide on admission and evaluate the relevance of setting compulsory bridging courses.

Moreover, the Doctoral Programme’s Academic Committee will request applicants to submit all the relevant documentation for their CV, in order to assess their merits according to the following criteria:

  • CV: 90%, following this scale:
    • Academic record in the Licenciatura/Diplomatura/Undergraduate degree: 30%;
    • Academic record in Official Master's degrees: 30%
    • Officially certified grants: 10%
    • Accredited languages: 10% System of levels of the Common European Guide of Reference (MCER)
    • Other merits: 10% Professional experience, articles, congresses, etc.
  • Personal interview: 10%

If the Academic Committee requires so, applicants will undergo a personal interview in order to provide more information about their previous training, or even to define potential additional training needs to include in their activities report. After evaluating applications, the Academic Committee will issue a report justifying the affinity of studies and will determine the accepted and rejected applicants.
