Change of thesis supervisor

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign him/her a new thesis supervisor or co-supervisor at any time  during the period of doctoral study

If a candidate’s supervisor has been changed or a co-supervisor has been assign ed, the thesis may not be submitted  until one year after the change or assignment of the new supervisor. Moreover, a new commitment agreement must be updated within 10 days of the day on which the new thesis supervisor is assigned.

If the change of supervisor requires transfer to a different doctoral programme, the request must follow the procedure described in article 5.2 of the Academic regulations for doctoral degree courses (Agreement numer 130/2016).
