Milestones during the Part B


Evaluations during Part B

The final evaluation of the PhD programme is carried out before submission of the PhD thesis, no later than after 42 months of enrolment.

The purpose of this evaluation is to carry out an assessment of the progression of the project, follow up on the evaluators’ recommendations from the qualification examination and associated PhD seminar, get a status of planned/completed study elements and feedback from the principal supervisor regarding the status of the thesis.

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.
