Milestones during the second year


Evaluations during the second year

After the second year of the PhD programme, the last regular evaluation of the PhD course is carried out. 

No later than 24 months after the submission of the PhD plan, the PhD student and the principal supervisor must submit a status report to the PhD School secretariat.

If, in connection with the evaluations, the head of the PhD School concludes that you do not meet the requirements of the PhD plan despite any adjustments, you will receive an offer to rectify your PhD study within three months. The head of the PhD School will typically be in close dialogue with supervisors and possibly the head of department before deciding on a rectification course. The three-month rectification period does not in itself lead to an extension of the overall PhD programme. Offers for rectification courses can only be given once during the entire PhD programme.


If you have not accepted this within one week of receiving the three-month offer for the rectification of the programme, your enrolment will cease.
