PhD students submit their progress reports twice a year (June and December), while supervisors submit their report once a year (June).
Everyone who is enrolled in the PhD programme in Music Education, Music Therapy, and Performance Practice will undergo a midterm evaluation when they are halfway through their study.
The midterm evaluation is a requirement in the DRAVHA90 course.
The trial disputation is one of the requirements of the DRAVHA90 course: PhD Dissertation and Doctoral defence. It will usually take place 2-3 months before the dissertation is expected to be submitted. The trial disputation is open to the public, but no public announcements are made in this connection.
The training component (with the exception of the remaining research forums) must have been completed with a passing grade prior to arranging a trial disputation.
