Individual study plan

The individual study plan is an important educational tool for effective PhD education, since the individual study plan provides a basis for determining the rights and obligations of the PhD student.

As soon as possible after enrollement on the PhD studies, an individual study plan up to the intended degree should be prepared by the PhD student and her/his supervisors. More information about the individual study plan can be found in the study syllabus, chapter 5.3 Individual study plan.
