Escuela de Doctorado - UAH - Prospective Students - Procedure of matriculation


Admission onto a doctoral programme not only implies a relationship between the Thesis Supervisor and the doctoral student but also between the student and the University; therefore, if you have been admitted to a doctoral programme, prior to writing your thesis, you must complete your enrolment to secure the right to academic supervision and pay the enrolment fee within ten days from the date of admission. This enrolment endows you with membership of the University, entitling you to use the resources necessary to conduct your research and to exercise your full rights as a doctoral student. If fee payments are not made on time, admission will not be processed and the student will leave the programme definitively.

If your are already a doctoral student, enrolment for academic supervision must be completed every academic year, from the year of being admitted to the doctoral programme until you present the defence of your doctoral thesis. If fee payments are not made on time, the student will leave the programme definitively and their registration with the Doctoral School will be terminated. In the event that you decide to return to your doctoral studies again, you will have to reapply for access and admission.
