Rectification Period

If, in connection with the evaluations, the Head of PhD School concludes that you do not meet the requirements of the PhD plan despite any adjustments made, you will receive an offer to rectify your PhD programme within three months. The three months will not in itself lead to an extension of the total PhD programme. Offers for rectification courses can only be given once during the entire PhD programme.

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

If you accept the offer to rectify the course of programme, the Head of PhD School will appoint an assessment committee consisting of two expert assessors and the principal supervisor. The assessment committee must set specific objectives for how you can rectify the course of programme within the three months and assess whether there is a need for changes to the PhD plan.

At the end of the three months, the assessors will within a month carry out a new evaluation, which assesses whether you have met the set objectives and whether the course of programme can be continued.

If the evaluation at the end of the three months is positive, the Head of PhD School approves the evaluation and the PhD programme can continue. You and your principal supervisor will receive the decision from the PhD School via e-mail.

If the evaluation at the end of the three months remains negative, enrolment ceases. You and your principal supervisor will receive the decision from the PhD School via e-mail. Within a week, you can send comments to the dean about the Head of PhD School’s decision. The final decision is in this case made by the Dean.
