Lines of research

Human relationships throughout life: couple, family and group

Mental health and psychopathology: the challenges of a changing global society

Exclusion: social (in)justice, conflict and psychological well-being

Maladaptive behavior related to digital technologies

Mobility (International Relations)

Students enroll in one of the partner universities, where they spend most of their research time. Each student has three supervisors, one from each university, and is required to spend at least 12 months at one or two of the partner universities.

During the periods spent at other universities, students will collaborate with the research team of their co-supervisor, who will assume responsibility for the progress of the student's learning during their stay. Students will take part in their co-supervisor's research group seminars and can attend advanced methodological training at any of the associate institutions.

In addition, students can do an internship of 1-6 months at a third university, depending on the needs of their research project. These periods can be uninterrupted or can be divided into shorter periods, depending on the needs of the thesis project.

Student follow-up

Each student will join a research group and participate in its activities and projects, in close collaboration with the thesis supervisors.

Curriculum

The PhD program does not have a curriculum as such: its structure is based on the training activities of the PhD students and the specific training courses of the program itself, which mainly focus on methodological tools for research. These courses are specified at appropriate times in each of the years when students are being trained and writing their thesis.

Internships

PhD students can do an internship of 1-6 months at a third university, depending on the needs of their research project. These periods can be uninterrupted or can be divided into shorter periods, depending on the needs of the thesis project.

PhD thesis

The PhD student will develop the thesis within the framework of one of the research areas of the program. Each student will join a research group and participate in its activities and projects, in close collaboration with the thesis supervisors.

Participation in the work of the research group and team meetings is a key learning activity for carrying out an original piece of research to obtain a PhD degree (project planning and formulation of relevant hypotheses, laboratory or fieldwork, data analysis, writing research reports). In the context of these meetings, students will have the opportunity to use their skills to present research, give oral presentations, and prepare documents for publication.

Admission process for PhDs at the School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences

Admissions process

There are two stages to the application process:

  • Pre-enrollment: the student can pre-enrol in person at the school or online. When the pre-enrollment process has been completed, you will obtain a receipt with pre-enrollment details and a pre-enrollment code (CIB).

All applicants must have an interview with the program coordinator. The Academic Committee for the PhD Programs will assess the information and select the candidates by weighing up the following criteria:

  1. Assessment of the interview and the documentation submitted (weighted at 50%)
  2. Assessment of the resume (weighted at 40%)
  3. Assessment of the letter of intent (weighted at 10%)
  • Enrollment: this means accepting the place once it has been assigned.

You must fill in the form at http://preinscripcio.blanquerna.edu and follow the process indicated. In this modality, payment for pre-enrollment rights (€100) is by credit or debit card using a secure, confidential BBVA process.

The following documentation must be sent before the deadline for the pre-enrollment process:

  • Photocopy of ID card, passport or NIE residence card.
  • Official academic transcript (original or certified copy) with grades for the courses taken and the average mark of the qualification, if available at the time of pre-enrollment or application for admission.
    • Applicants with studies qualifying them for access completed outside Spain: certificate issued by the relevant body (university, embassy, consulate) confirming that the studies qualify the student to undertake master degree or graduate studies in the country of issue.
  • Resume of the applicant.
  • Letter of intent.
  • Research experience in the field (if any).
  • B2.1 or higher English level (if any).
  • Letters of recommendation from researchers of a research group at Ramon Llull University (if any).

Please contact the School's Student Information and Orientation Service with the following documentation:

  • Photocopy of ID card
  • Official academic transcript (original or certified copy) with grades for the courses taken and the average mark of the qualification, if available at the time of pre-enrollment or application for admission.
    • Applicants with studies qualifying them for access completed outside Spain: certificate issued by the relevant body (university, embassy, consulate) confirming that the studies qualify the student to undertake master degree or graduate studies in the country of issue.
  • Resume of the applicant.
  • Letter of intent.
  • Research experience in the field (if any).
  • B2.1 or higher English level (if any).
  • Letters of recommendation from researchers of a research group at Ramon Llull University (if any).
  • €100 pre-enrollment fee. Payment can be made in cash or by credit or debit card.

The student is responsible for having all the official documentation for their stay in Spain while studying at the School. Anyone requiring as such can ask for a pre-acceptance document attached to the pre-enrollment receipt to start the necessary procedures to obtain visas, scholarships or any other procedure. Under no circumstances does this document guarantee a place if all the access and admission requirements are not met. Once applicants have been accepted and enrollment is complete, they can request a letter of admission from the Academic Secretary, if required, by paying the corresponding fees.

Enrollment

Each applicant will be informed personally of the date and time of enrollment, along with the result of their admissions process. You must bring the following documentation with you when you enroll:

  • Certified photocopy of the qualification that gives the student access to the course or documentary proof that the relevant document has been requested.
  • 1 passport sized photograph.

The School does not guarantee the courses will be held if the required minimum number of enrollments is not reached.

Enrollment is the final step in the procedure to access the PhD course. Students will be informed individually of the enrollment date. When enrollment is completed, with payment of the corresponding fee, the student will have definitively secured a place. When students enrol, they will have two business days to pay the total cost of enrollment, by bank transfer or using a barcode at the bank. Once enrollment has been formalized, the amount paid will not be refunded under any circumstances.​

  1. When a student enrolls, a contract for the provision of teaching services is formalized between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation, which is legally binding from the time of payment. Payment must be made within two working days of the date of enrollment by the means of payment referred to above.
  2. Payment includes the corresponding insurance and, for students under the age of twenty-eight, compulsory academic insurance.
  3. If a student declines to take up a place, he/she will lose in full any amount he/she has paid.
  4. The student accepts the rules for the use of computer services established by the Blanquerna Foundation.
  5. The student's personal data will be included in an automated file under the responsibility of the Blanquerna Foundation, so that this contract can be maintained and fulfilled. Students should note that their data may also be used to inform them about the future activities of the Foundation, or for the institution to send them publications. In accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 15/1999 on the protection of personal data, students have the right to access their data to update, rectify or cancel them, or oppose their use, by sending a letter, indicating which right they want to exercise, to the following address: Secretariat of the Blanquerna Foundation / Passeig de Sant Gervasi, 47 / 08022 Barcelona.

This section is a summary of the general conditions for enrollment. It is only for guidance and therefore has no contractual value. In the event of any discrepancy, the provisions of the General Conditions for Enrollment specified in the receipt generated at the time of enrollment will prevail; this receipt formalizes the contract between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation; students can consult it on the intranet whenever they wish.

Gender perspective

As the European Union points out, gender equality is not only a matter of social justice but also affects the results of teaching and research. Promoting gender equality in research and innovation is one of the European Commission's commitments, and it supports the explicit integration of a gender perspective in Horizon 2020 projects. However, this recommendation is often poorly understood and misapplied. Various documents are presented here with a view to contributing to a better understanding and application of the gender perspective in teaching and research.
