Thesis direction

Once doctoral 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. The supervisor, doctoral student, tutor and programme coordinator will need to sign the programme's doctoral candidate agreement. The supervisor must be a UOC faculty member or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has proven research experience.

In any case, to be assigned a thesis supervisor, doctoral students must first satisfactorily complete all the courses, seminars and activities included on their pathway.

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 of the Thesis Supervisory Committee must not be a UOC faculty member or researcher.

The doctoral thesis may be jointly supervised by up to two people with doctoral degrees and proven research experience. If joint supervision is proposed, the second joint supervisor, who must meet the requirements to be a Thesis Advisory Committee member, will also sit on that committee and will be responsible for issuing the necessary reports to enable the Academic Committee to assess and monitor the doctoral student's progress.

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 the relevant reports and, where applicable, for authorization to submit it.
