Progress report doctoral study programme

Every year PhD students need to report about their progress in:

  • their doctoral research;
  • their doctoral study programme.

For their doctoral study programme PhD students gather their own activities. They can choose from a variety of courses, but can also submit activities linked to the doctoral research.

If the PhD student has earned a total of at least 30 points (with at least 1 point in minimum 4 competence categories and with at a maximum half of his/her points in 1 competence category of the competence profile), he/she can close down the doctoral study programme. The PhD student needs to provide a proof for every activity.

The doctoral study programme needs to be closed down before the jury of the thesis defence is composed. If the doctoral study programme has not been completed, the PhD diploma cannot be issued.

These documents can help you to fill in the annual progress report.
