According to the  Doctorate academic regulations of the University of Lleida :

The Academic year is the period that begins on October 1 and ends on September 30 of the following year.

Each academic year, until the end of their studies, PhD students must register for academic supervision at the UdL. When it comes to joint Doctorate programmes, the agreement must determine the way in which this registration must be carried out.

The lack of thesis tuition enrolment during one academic year implies the definitive disengagement from the doctorate program.

Enrolment implies that PhD students must pay in full the price of academic supervision, fees, insurance, voluntary services, if applicable, and possible surcharges that are determined annually by the Generalitat de Catalunya and the agreements established by the Social Council of the UdL.

The economic regime is regulated in the Doctorate academic regulations of the University of LleidaFor economic issues that are not specific to doctoral studies, the Academic Regulations for Official Master's Studies University of Lleida, approved by the Governing Council for each academic year, apply.

Compulsory school insurance corresponds to trainee researchers enrolled under 28 years of age. The researcher in foreign training of 28 years or more must present original and copy of the insurance of health care and accidents valid to the Spanish State.

The PhD student may withdraw from enrolment in the Doctoral studies for justified reasons, with the knowledge of the tutor and the director of the thesis, within the deadlines established in the Doctoral procedures calendar.

Doctoral students with habitual residence abroad

Enrolment for doctoral studies at the University of Lleida does not include the possibility of completing the studies online. Doctoral students with habitual residence abroad must make a mandatory stay at the UdL within their study years (preferably, during the first academic year of enrolment).
