I have been accepted to do a PhD in Czech Republic. I will be arriving to the University at the end of November 2020.
The supervisor told me to take about three courses and we agreed on which courses I'll take. I then emailed a professor that is responsible of one of the courses and he told me that the couse is not organized as a regular one consisting of a series of lectures. Instead it is supported by a group or individual consultations devoted to specific topics.
So my question is how is the study by consultation done (in detail please)?
Also Why is a PhD couse studied by consultation rather than a series of lectures?
