Declaration of co-authorship

One of the mandatory documents that must be submitted with your PhD thesis is Declaration of Co-authorship.
 Here you must indicate the extend of your contribution to the articles in the thesis. 

You must include one declaration for each article or manuscript. All co-authors must sign the declaration, however, it is okay that there are several documents for the same article or manuscript, if it is not possible to get your co-authors to sign the same document. Please remember to sign all pages, and combine them in one pdf before submission. 

End of enrolment
Your enrolment as a PhD student ends when you submit your PhD thesis. This means that if you are not employed elsewhere, you will qualify for unemployment benefit from the date of submission.
