Method of admission to the final examination
The final PhD exam must take place by February 28 of the year following the one in which the student ends the 3-year course.
By July of the third year: the Board of Faculties will propose the names of the external reviewers.
By October 31st students will prepare a first draft of the thesis in English and will send it to the external reviewers, to the coordinator and to their advisors.
By November 15th the external reviews will be sent to the coordinator.
In case the external reviewers will judge the thesis as inadequate for the final exam, students can be assigned additional 6 months to review their thesis. After that, students will send their reviewed thesis to the external reviewers for a new evaluation. In this last case, the defense will be postponed as well.
The submission and the evaluation of the final version of the thesis will be asked by January 15th of the year following the third one.
Students present the Thesis in a seminar to an internal committee for final evaluation nominated by the Board of Faculties. The admission to the final exam is decided by Board of Faculties, based upon the reports of the External Reviewers, and of Thesis Committee (reports from the advisor and co-advisor), and of the overall assessment, made by the committee for final evaluation, after the presentation.
By February 28th, students will be required to present and discuss the thesis in front of the PhD Awarding Commission, which is empowered to issue the title of Doctor of Research. By this date the students have also to submit the final version of the thesis, in which they incorporate the modifications suggested by the reviewers or by the internal commission.
