Upon completion of his/her thesis, the candidate should seek authorization from the programme’s Academic Committee (AC) to deposit it. To this end, s/he must:
- Hand in the documentation listed here at the Registry (in the Faculty’s Administrative Office) and, if s/he plans to apply for the International Doctorate Distinction, also the documentation listed under Article 49 in the UB’s Normativa Reguladora dels Estudis de Doctorat
- Ensure that his/her supervisor sends the coordinator, Dra. Mireia Aragay, either the form for the 3-member examining board (new programme) or the form for the 5-member examining board (previous programme), duly filled in, as well as the CVs (pdf) of the external (i.e. non-UB) members of the examining board
The programme’s AC decides on the candidate’s application within a period of 20 days starting on the day after his/her submission of the application for authorization to deposit the thesis at the Registry. If the AC rules favourably, the candidate is informed by email.
Within a period on 5 days starting from the moment the candidate is informed that s/he has been authorized to deposit his/her thesis, the UB’s Doctoral School (EDUB) announces here that the thesis has been deposited, where it has been deposited and when the deposit period ends.
The authorized copy remains deposited for a period of 7 days starting on the day after the EDUB announces the deposit on the web. During the deposit period, any doctor may examine the thesis and submit his/her observations in writing to the Faculty’s Doctoral Committee.
Within a period of 15 days starting on the day the deposit period ends, the Faculty’s Doctoral Committee decide whether or not they authorize the thesis to proceed to the viva voce examination. The candidate is informed of the Doctoral Committee’s decision by email.
