Change in the mode of study

PhD students may change their mode of study (full or part-time) by sending an application giving their reasons to the Doctoral School, which will send it to the Academic Committee of the Doctoral Programme for its assessment and decision (see model application and decision).
Once the application for a change of mode has been received by the Academic Committee it will be sent to the Doctoral School, which will enter the information on the change in mode in SIGMA so that it can be used for calculating the time for completing the thesis.
Deadline for applications for a change of mode:
The application for a change in the study mode must be made 15 days in advance of the start of the corresponding enrolment deadline, allowing for exceptional cases that may occur in the rest of the academic year, which must include documentary justification. No changes in the study mode to part-time will be accepted at less than 4 months from the limit for the thesis deposit indicated in SIGMA.

Each doctoral student may make a maximum of two requests for change of dedication throughout the thesis.
