Admission procedures adapted to students with special educational needs derived from the disabilities.
The University of Alicante Student Support Centre (SSC) is available for all those students with any degree of disability, regardless if their nature (physical, sensorial, psychic, mental or a chronic illness) that may interfere with their studies. The SSC is made up by a multidisciplinary team, whose mission is to offer specific attention in order to guarantee full university participation, following the principles of equal opportunities and universal accessibility.
Its main goals are as follows:
- Ensure the UA students with disabilities their right to study with the reasonable adjustments according to their individual needs.
- Develop a set of customised and effective support measures to make the most of their academic and social development.
- Ensure professional and high quality support, as well as confidentiality.
- Promote the participation of students with any functional diversity in educational complementary activities to fully integrate them in the university life.
In the event that students do not have previous training required in the programme, they will have to take additional specific training.
Additional training must be specified for each student by the Doctoral Academic Committee and will consist of taking one or more undergraduate or Master's subjects or modules, directly related to the knowledge necessary to take the PhD degree with the maximum guaranteed success within the time devoted to it, according to the PhD regulations, with a maximum of 20 ECTS credits.
The completion of this additional training must always be after admission and registration and must be achieved within three consecutive academic terms. Failure to so so will result in the student's dismissal from the programme.

ASSIGNMENT OF GUARDIAN AND DIRECTOR
The definitive admission of a PhD student in the doctoral program entails the assignment of a tutor. The Permanent Academic Committee (CAP) of the CAP doctorate program is responsible for appointing tutors and doctoral thesis directors within the deadlines established by the Doctoral School of the University of Alicante (EDUA) and according to the criteria on accredited research experience established in section 5.1 of the verification report of the doctoral program.
The assignment of the thesis supervisor takes into account, in addition to the predilection for a certain line of research and its adaptation by the doctoral student, the availability of work space and funding by the receiving team, and a balanced distribution of doctoral students among the different lines of research. For this purpose, the CAP, in which all the research teams that appear in the verification report are represented, will have previously initiated the opportune contacts with the potential tutors / thesis supervisors.
In a timely manner and heard the doctoral student, it will be possible to address possible requests for change of tutor or director, provided that there are justified reasons, which must have the approval of the CAP.
