Study Plans

Under the program, PhD students prepare a 2-month plan and then an 11-month plan of their study schedule. To ensure the quality of research and PhD outcomes, the 11-month plan must include a section on: state-of-the-art, including an account of the project's position relative to other research; methodology, outlining the project's approach and methods; and must clearly state the novel contribution the PhD will make. In addition to this: "It has been decided by the Dean that a PhD study must include a mandatory oral status seminar prior to submitting the 11 month study plan. It has been decided that this procedure is active for every PhD student enrolled after 1st of January 2016 which means that a PhD student who has to submit an 11 month study plan from 1st of November and forth on must participate in such a status seminar".
