The Academic Committee of the doctoral programme will assess your progress in completing your doctoral thesis every year

What are the possible grades?

  • Positive assessment
  • Negative assessment

Consequences of a negative assessment

  • A negative assessment on justifiable grounds will lead to the doctoral student being re-assessed within six months of the previous assessment.
  • To that end, the doctoral student will prepare a new Research Plan.

VERY IMPORTANT: A second negative assessment will lead to you being withdrawn from the programme.


Annually, during the period determined by each Academic Committee

Documentation assessed

  • Activities Document
  • Research Plan
  • The thesis supervisor's and tutor's reports

Please note

You must register the academic supervision within the stipulated deadlines every year, regardless of the grades obtained in the assessment in question
