After the right to take the postgraduate degree (Licentiate, Doctor) has been granted, the student and the 1st supervisor/s together draw up a supervisory agreement and a personal study plan.
The supervisory agreement includes the duties and the rights of the student and his/her supervisor/s and a timetable for the studies. The personal study plan includes the contents and modes of the other studies (60 ECTS) required for the Licentiate’s/Doctor's degree.
Please find the form here. The instructions on filling the form are in the last page of the form.
The 1st supervisor accepts the study plan and possible changes which will be made in it later on. A marking of the acceptance of the study plan will be updated into the study register by contact persons: Pertti Vuorilehmus: the doctoral programme in Psychology and Logopaedics, Terhi Raitanen: the other doctoral programmes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The form should be filled in as soon as possible after having the right to study. The student should have his/her copy of the signed form.
The signed form is filed and kept at the School Office. The accepted supervisory agreement and the study plan has to be presented to the School when applying for the degree certificate.
The curricula of the doctoral programmes may include some additional requirements concerning the supervisory agreement and the study plan.
Please find more information on a period of transition here.
The student reports at least once a year to the supervisor on the progress of the thesis and the other studies. The reporting is marked in the transcript of study records. The personal study plan and the research plan should be updated when necessary. If the thesis changes radically or there are delays in the studies, a new research plan can be demanded from the student.
Form for reporting the studies.
Registered postgraduate degree students of the School of Social Sciences and Humanities have the right to take studies offered by other schools of the University if this has been agreed on with the School offering the teaching and if the studies are included in the personal study plan of the student.
When pursuing studies in other schools, corresponding curricula and other regulations must be followed..
If the postgraduate degree is meant to be organized in co-operation with some foreign University (so called cotutelle degrees) the 1st supervisor of the student should contact the Head of Educational Affairs already at the beginning of the process, so that every aspect of the co-operation will be considered and all the necessary agreements will be made correctly. In the co-operation arrangements all the rules and orders of the University of Tampere should be followed. A written agreement on co-operation will be accepted by the Board, following these rules.
