  • DESCRIPTION: Cessation of the academic and administrative procedures relating to a previously completed registration with the consequent loss of the rights of evaluation and of the status of doctoral student and of the benefits attached to this status.

Implementation course: 2023-24



The interested party or the authorized person on presentation of the necessary identification.


At the Secretary's Office of the Faculty/School where they are carrying out their studies.

The student must present the following documentation:


Resolution of the application


The person responsible in the secretary's office. 


Wherever possible, when the application is made. At most 5 days after presenting the application and any necessary documentation.


  • The interested party will be informed of the resolution and, if appropriate, their academic transcript will be updated.

  • The annulment of registration will be recorded on the computer system.


  • Students who wish to annul their registration must be up-to-date with their payments (100% of the thesis supervision fees and of administrative fees, insurance and voluntary services, if applicable) and they are not entitled to a refund of these amounts.
  • If the application for annulment is not presented within the established periods and the corresponding fees are not paid, the student will be required to pay these fees. Doctoral students in this situation will be temporarily suspended. Certificates and academic transcripts will not be issued to students while they are suspended. Suspended students may not resume their studies at the University in subsequent academic years until they have paid all outstanding fees. This is stipulated in the Decree on public prices and applies to all Catalan universities.


  • Students whose registration is annulled will lose their place and all academic and administrative consequences relating to the registration will be terminated.
    • New doctoral students will have the documents that they submitted when they registered returned, if applicable. Students will have to go through the pre-registration procedure again if they wish to begin any other programme.
    • All other students who wish to continue their studies must apply to resume their courses during the academic year after the annulment. If after a full academic year they have not applied to resume their studies on the original programme, they will no longer permitted to do so. If they decide to undertake doctoral studies in the future, they must pre-register for a different programme.
  • New students will be returned the documents that they submitted when they registered.
  • If doctoral students have applied for or hold a grant or a position as a trainee researcher, the secretary's office must inform the Academic Management Service.
