The doctoral programme has three monitoring points:
- Semester plan (completed by the doctoral candidate)
- Report of activities and results (completed by the doctoral candidate)
- Semester report by the mentor or thesis director (completed by the mentor or thesis director)
In order for the doctoral candidate to pass to the next semester, they must present the Report of activities and results and obtain a favourable report from the mentor or thesis director.
In addition, if the semester involves an objective, the student must also meet such an objective favourably. The Research and Doctoral Commission will decide on the advancement by semester.
