General Considerations:

  1. This activity is compulsory for all the students enrolled in the academic year.
  2. The working language is English.
  3. A rubric for evaluation is approved by the Academic Committee of the PhD program (CAPD). This rubric will be used for all students. Nevertheless, evaluation committees will take into consideration the actual dedication of the students: Full- time students, Part-time students, etc. This rubric is in Annex 1.
  4. This rubric will be completed by the Evaluation Committee, and by the advisor(s) of the thesis. In case of more than one advisor, all advisors must agree on a single rubric.
  5. The Evaluation Committee will propose a Score to the Academic Committee of the PhD Program. CAPD will be in charge of delivering the final score.
  6. Each student will be assigned to one of the evaluation committees. This assignment is made by the CAPD.
  7. There will be four  Evaluation Committees:
