Evaluations during the second year

Evaluations during the second year

No later than 16-18 months after enrolment, the PhD student and the principal supervisor must prepare a status report and compile the written material that is the basis for the evaluation. As the principal supervisor, you are responsible for sending it to the two evaluators.

The seminar, which is held in connection with the mid-term evaluation, must as a general rule be held 16-18 months after enrolment. In certain cases, exemptions can be granted, e.g. if the PhD student is on a stay abroad during the mentioned period.

As the principal supervisor, it is your job to prepare the regular evaluations.

The purpose of the mid-term evaluation is to provide a basis for and an assessment of the project’s development and achieved results.

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.
