Register monitoring

In the case it takes too long for you to finish your doctoral studies, the Faculty of Science may also require you to update your study and research plan, or otherwise, you will not be able to register for the next term/academic year. For more details, please, see the faculty's page on Duration of studies.

To get the registration block removed, do the following:

  1. Fill in the form for updating your study plan (in Finnish).
  2. Update your research and study plan and discuss it with your supervisor.
  3. State clearly in the research plan for how long would you like to have your study right extended (maximum 3 years).
  4. Sign the form.
  5. Have your supervisor sign both the plans.
  6. Return the form and both the plans to the DoCS coordinator.

Your application will be either accepted, rejected or returned for further improvements by the DoCS board. 

Reactivating your study right

Postgraduate students are removed from the University’s student register, if they do not register as attending or non-attending students during the registration time for each academic year.

If this happens to you and you want to register as an attending or non-attending student before 31 July of the following year, you have to pay the re-enrolment fee of 35 euros. Please, see the instructions of the Faculty of Science on this.

If you wish to continue your PhD studies at a later date, you have to apply for readmission. In such a case, do the following:

  1. Fill in the form for an application for re-enrolment.
  2. Update your research and study plan and discuss it with your supervisor.
  3. State clearly in the plan for how long your studies will take.
  4. Sign the form.
  5. Have your supervisor sign both the plans.
  6. Return the application form and the research and study plans to the DoCS coordinator.

Your application will be either accepted, rejected or returned for further improvements by the DoCS board.

Note that in addition for submitting the application, you also have to pay the the re-enrolment fee of 35 euros, once the faculty has activated your study right. Please, see the instructions of the Faculty of Science on this.
