Application for extensions


The PhD student will be able to ask to the Academic Committee of the PhD Program for  authorization of a one-year extension for full-time students, and up to two years for part-time students.

Deadline for requesting extensions: If applicable, the extension must be requested before the end of the term to deposit the thesis; Preferably, it will coincide with the delivery of the annual report corresponding to the evaluation of the third/fourth guardianship (or fifth/seventh for part-time dedication) or, in the event that there have been changes in dedication, together with the annual report prior to the end of the term to deposit the thesis.

Only in the cases where it would be necessary to ask for the extension out of the ordinary period of evaluation, the doctoral students will send this request to the Doctoral School where they will manage the process of resolution with the Academic Committee.

The doctoral student will be able to ask for the concession of one additional year of extension in justified cases.

Once the request has been resolved by the Academic Committee it will be sent to the Doctorate School, which will enter the information on the extension period in SIGMA so that it can be used for calculating the time for completion of the thesis and thus complete the enrolment process in additional tutorial courses.
