Who:

The vice-rector for scientific policy and research

When:  

Within one month of the presentation of the application.

How:

  • The academic committee, if appropriate, will approve the application and will pass the original version of the resolution to the Postgraduate and Doctoral School.
  • The Postgraduate and Doctoral School will send the application to the Vice-Rector for Scientific Policy and Research, who will decide on the matter and notify the interested party.
  • The Postgraduate and Doctoral School will send a copy of the notification and the resolution to the tutor and supervisor of the doctoral thesis and to the academic committee.

Cost:

None.

    Observations:    

The resolution will mean that previously completed academic years of study on the original doctoral programme can be included when the student's minimum course duration is calculated in accordance with article 12 of the academic and registration regulations governing doctoral programme for the academic year 2017-18.

Consequently, the student only needs a pass for the doctoral programme regulated by RD 99/2011 on which he/she is currently registered. This resolution requires the student to deposit his/her thesis during the current or immediately subsequent academic year.
