Recognition of research done abroad (for doctoral students)
Doctoral students must find out how long it takes to obtain the Transcript of Records (signed by a member of the academic staff at their host university) certifying the research they have done abroad for their thesis and then pass this information on to the SIS Erasmus office.

On their return, doctoral students must submit:

  • a detailed report on the research they did abroad for their thesis;
  • a note signed by their supervisor confirming that their research has been productive.  This report must be written by the Head of the Doctoral School in order for students’ research to be recognized as contributing to their thesis.
