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 17 and 18 January 2019. Researchers must plan to be present in Florence for their thesis monitoring session.
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 has to be sent to the Departmental Coordinator by 9 January 2019. 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.
