Annual Assessment

Every course students have to do an annual progress evaluation defense in front of an academic committee. It is necessary to have a positive result of this annual assessment in order to register the following course.

The duration of the Ph.D. is maximum three years.

The annual assessments will be as follows:


Deadline for submitting the documents:

  • May 15th (to be confirmed every course). Notice that all the documents submitted need to have your supervisor approval.


Annual assessment defense:

  • Normally June 15th – 30th (to be informed every course).


If the annual assessment were NOT FAVORABLE, the Ph.D. student will have to register  for a retake review, and submit the documents by the end of November and then make a new presentation in December (the dates will be confirmed every course). Should that second review be also negative, the Ph.D. candidate will be forced to leave the programme.
