RESEARCH PLAN - 1st COURSE

  What is the Research Plan?

It is the report prepared by the researcher in training, which is presented together with the corresponding application for registration and the indispensable endorsement of the tutor and director/s.

The memory must contain:

  • The provisional title of the future doctoral thesis
  • Description of objectives
  • Material and the study method
  • Work plan with an indication of the expected calendar

The academic committee can add content and requirements that you can find at the bottom of this page.

 

  When do you have to register?

First-year doctoral students, enrolled before December 31st, will have to present their Research Plan during the first annual evaluation session. Those who register as of January 1, will have to submit the Research Plan to the second annual evaluation call.

Each academic commission makes its call through the virtual campus of the program, with specific instructions.

You can consult the calendars of the course corresponding to the following link.

The evaluation of the first year is EXCEEDED when:

  • The Academic Committee approves the submitted Research Plan and the provisional title of the thesis is inscribed.

The Academic Committee will be able to evaluate with a "NO SURPASSED" when the doctoral candidate does not meet the requirements established in the Program Doctorate The doctoral candidate who does not pass the ordinary call for annual evaluation, may re-submit to the extraordinary call. A second negative evaluation implies the definitive withdrawal of the Program.
