1.  The ETHZ regulation for doctoral students

The credit point system is adopted from the ‘Verordnung über das Doktoratsstudium an der Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule Zürich, 1 July 2008, and is binding for all doctoral students participating in the International PhD Program in Neuroscience of the ZNZ. The following is an excerpt from this ‘Verordnung’:

2.  Credit point courses

The ‘Introductory Course in Neuroscience’ accounts for two credit points per semester.This two-semester course is mandatory for all first-year doctoral students registered at the ZNZ. In the second and third year, the doctoral student chooses courses from the credit point course list, established by the members of the ZNZ (the list is not exclusive). Thus, besides the four credit points from the Introductory Course in Neuroscience, the doctoral student must collect at least eight credit points by taking courses from the course list. A course can be attended only once for credit. Credit points will only be awarded for courses, but not for attendance at conferences. The doctoral student must list his/her credit point courses on a course attendance form (Testatbogen) provided by the ZNZ. Alternatively, ETH Zurich students may use their ETH Zurich course attendance form instead.
