  • CISM Short Courses are currently part of Doctoral programmes in a number of European Universities and Higher Education Institutes.

    Upon agreement between CISM representatives, course coordinators and the director of the specific doctoral school, short courses can award credits for doctoral programmes.

    A list of European Universities acknowledging CISM courses in the frame of doctoral programmes follows.
