Renewal of enrolment

Annual renewal of enrolment in the Doctoral School

The typical length of a doctoral thesis is three years. An extension can be granted by the head of the University. The candidate should submit a justification for an extension, which needs to be approved by the PhD supervisor. The director of the Doctoral School can then apply for an extension with the head of the University. (Decree from August 7th, 2006 a. 15).

The administrative enrolment has to be renewed every year (decree from August 7th, 2006 a. 14). Students who fail to enroll will be considered as having abandoned their thesis. Accordingly, the PhD thesis can only be submitted if the candidate has been registered for the current year.

You all have a ERNEST account that was created when you registered at the university and you have to activate if it is not done yet.
