Mid-term evaluation

Mid-term evaluation of the candidate's PhD project must be carried out when the candidate is midway into the PhD program (preferably 3rd semester for candidates with a three-year contract and 4th semester for candidates with a four-year contract) and no later than one year before planned submission of the thesis.

Evaluation of PhD courses

As part of NIH's quality assurance program, all students who have completed a PhD course organized at NIH will be asked to participate in an evaluation of this course. The surveys are anonymous. The results of the surveys are presented to KFU. The feedback from doctorate students is important to ensure the quality of the doctorate program.
