Progress and Evaluation proces

Progress and Evaluation proces

Each year, before 1 May, the PhD student submits a progress report to his/her individual PhD commission. The PhD student will report on both the research progress and the progress in the doctoral study programme through SISA.

The individual PhD commission discusses the PhD student's file within six weeks after the submission of this report. The individual PhD commission will invite the PhD student for a personal interview. The evaluation will be available in the PhD student's selfservice in SisA after the evaluation deadline. 

The activities in the doctoral study programme will be checked by the doctoral administration. Handing in both progress reports is mandatory.
