Thesis Monitoring Sessions
The third year is the most demanding in quality and quantity of work and the department organises a thesis monitoring session in which each researcher discusses his/her work in progress with the supervisor and the second reader on 11 and 12 January 2018.
For this thesis monitoring session third-year researchers are expected to prepare in advance a draft of the structure of their thesis which will constitute the basis of the discussion. This draft (approximately 2.500 words) has to be sent to the Departmental Coordinator by 4 January 2018. Besides the self-assessment of the progress of the PhD and the identification of existing problems and challenges, the draft should include an updated table of contents and a section on the planned work ahead.
