12. On enrolment, the academic committee has assigned me a tutor. What are his or her duties?

When you receive the e-mail from the academic committee confirming your admission to the program you will be informed of the person who has been assigned to you as a tutor. His or her duties are to provide you with academic support during the doctorate.

The Tutor is responsible for ensuring that training and research activity complies with the principles of the Doctoral Programme and the Doctoral School.

In addition, the tutor (together with the director) will monitor the training activities and the research plan. This person must belong to the doctoral program and be a member of the UPV/EHU.

Although the two roles often overlap, there is no requirement for the tutor to be the same person as the director.
