The quality control procedures of the PhD Programme depend on the Internal Quality Guarantee System of the Doctoral School in the University of Vigo, where the Programme is.

The Doctoral Schools are university centres created following the regulatory framework of the RD 99/2011, in order to organise the PhD studies and activities; in the case of the Galician Public Universities, these were created through the Decree 95/2013, of June 13, of the Galician Government Department for Culture, Education and Universities.

The Quality Control Protocol of the Doctoral School of the University of Vigo is currently being developed and should be based, in any case, in the Quality Guarantee Framework System of the University of Vigo, and should be based and organised according to the guidelines of the RD 99/2011 for PhD Programmes.
