Mid-term evaluation

The mid-term evaluation is an evaluation of the implementation of an individual research plan, which each PhD candidate of a doctoral school takes place in the middle of his / her education. The evaluation is carried out by a three-person commission composed of at least one person with the degree of a habilitated doctor or the title of professor in the discipline in which the doctoral dissertation is being prepared, employed outside the unit running the Doctoral School.

The evaluation ends with a positive or negative result. A negative assessment is a basis for removing a PhD candidate from the list of doctoral students of the doctoral school. A positive result of the mid-term evaluation means that from the month following the evaluation of the PhD candidate’s scholarship, it amounts to at least 57 percent of the minimum salary of the professor (before the evaluation, it is at least 37 percent).
