The Biology and Ecology of Global Changes programme from Universidade de Aveiro demands a strong interest of students in the areas of specialization of the programme (Tropical Biology and Ecology; Marine Biology and Ecology; Ecology and Functional Biodiversity; Genome Biology and Evolution: Environmental Biology and Health).

The main objectives of the Programme are centred in global changes issues, including the understanding the impact of global changes in living organisms and ecosystems taking into account current scenarios and projections. The total length of the Program is 4 years. The first year includes lectures and workshops by leading scientists. At the same time students will be invited to select and/or develop and propose their own PhD research projects. These projects will be approved by the Coordination Committee of the Programme and should be accomplished within the four years of the Programme. Opportunities will be given to students to develop their thesis work abroad.

The total length of the Program is 4 years (i.e. 240 ects-european credits transfer system). It is organized in two distinct phases, a first one that is mainly by course work (1st year) and a second one where students will dedicate most of their time to the development of their PhD research projects, submission of scientific papers, and that will end up in the presentation and discussion of their thesis in a viva voice exam (years 2, 3 and 4). So, it combines course work and research, with an emphasis on the latter. Opportunities will be given to students to develop their thesis work abroad.
