19. What does the annual evaluation consist of? What happens in the event of a negative evaluation?

The academic committee will evaluate the doctoral candidate each year upon the basis of the research plan and the activity document.

An evaluation period of approximately 30 days in September is established, during which time no changes can be made to these documents. Each year, the Doctoral School will communicate the specific dates for this period on both its website and by email.

Evaluation results can be consulted by doctoral students via the GAUR application.

In the event of a negative evaluation (which must be duly explained), you will have a period of six months in which to respond to the comments from the academic committee and submit the new documentation.  In the event that it is negative, the doctoral candidate may be definitively excluded from the program.
