Thesis direction

Once students have successfully completed the courses and training activities included on their pathways in the first semester, the University will assign them a doctoral thesis supervisor. Both the supervisor and the student will need to sign the programme's doctoral candidate agreement. The supervisor must be a UOC faculty member or researcher with doctoral degree and proven research experience.

In all cases, to be assigned a thesis supervisor, students must first satisfactorily complete all the courses, seminars and activities included on their pathway, submit the admission application for their research plan, and have it be accepted by the established deadline.

The University will also ensure that a Thesis Supervisory Committee is set up. This committee is made up of the thesis supervisor, who chairs it, and two other lecturers with doctoral degrees and proven research experience. One of the three members must not be a UOC faculty member or researcher.

The doctoral thesis may be jointly supervised by up to three people, provided they all have doctoral degrees and proven research experience. If joint supervision is proposed, the second and third joint supervisors, who must meet the requirements to be Thesis Advisory Committee members, will also sit on that committee, where they will be responsible for assessing and monitoring progress on the research plan.

Once doctoral students have finished their thesis, at all times by the deadlines established under current regulations, they must ask the Thesis Supervisory Committee for a preliminary assessment and, where applicable, authorization to submit their thesis.

The Doctoral Programme in the Information and Knowledge Society has several quality assurance systems in place.

First, the UOC's Scientific Committee for Research and Doctoral Studies, an independent body set up in 2002 and made up of international experts tasked with evaluating the University's academic performance, oversees the quality of the doctoral programme and advises the University's president on research strategy.

Second, the doctoral programme's preliminary training period, based on university master's degree programmes offered by the Psychology and Education Sciences Department, took part in the 2011 call for applications for the Audit programme, jointly sponsored by the Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), the Agency for Quality Assurance in the Galician University System (ACSUG) and the Agency for Quality Assurance in the Catalan University System (AQU), with a view to promoting the development and implementation of internal quality assurance systems for higher education.

Finally, like all UOC programmes, the doctoral programme participates in the internal quality assurance system approved by the University's Governing Council on 19 June 2009.
