Duration of study programme: Change from full-time to part-time status or vice versa

  • DESCRIPTION: Doctoral students may choose to study their doctoral degrees full-time or part-time. If there is no specific reason why a student must study full-time (e.g. funding conditions, visa requirements, etc.) it is recommended that they study part-time because this will mean that they have a longer period in which to complete and deposit their thesis.

Administrative procedure

Who

After registration, the doctoral student or authorized person on presentation of the necessary identification.

Those doctoral students who are or have been the beneficiaries of a grant or a bursary that stipulates full-time status shall not be permitted to apply for part-time status.

Where

Via the online administrative procedures on the URV's intranet.

If doctoral students cannot carry out procedures online, they can present the application in person at the URV's General Registry or at any of its auxiliary registries.

When

At any time during the academic year.

How

Students must present:

  • An application sent to the President of the Academic Committee of the doctoral programme.

Cost

This procedure has no cost.

Observations

The Campus/School Secretariat will send the application to the corresponding Academic Committee.

Those doctoral students who have been registered for at least one year as part-time students will have five years in which to complete and deposit their thesis, as from the date of registration.
