Half-time review at FyFa

This page describes the process of half-time review for doctoral students at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology.

A half-time review needs to be conducted for every doctoral student who intends to complete a doctorate. The half-time review should be carried out two years after admission, or when two years of full-time doctoral education or the equivalent have been completed.

Half-time review at FyFa

Please start by reviewing the general KI rules for half-time review (link to internwebben.ki.se). 

1. Hand in a proposal for an examination committee

No later than four weeks before the set date for your half-time seminar, you need to have a proposal ready for an examination committee and submit the proposal to the FyFa study administrator for doctoral studies. For this purpose please use the form below and e-mail it to the study administrator.

The proposal should consist of three impartial PhD researchers, who are not involved in the project. You should first contact these to make sure that they are available at the time of the half-time seminar.

The head of the department officially appoints the examination committee.

2. Submit documentation to the examination committee

You or your supervisor should then submit to the members of the examination committee a number of documents related to your doctoral studies. Please consult the KI rules for half-time review (link to internwebben.ki.se) to see which documents should be submitted.

Please also submit copies of all documents to FyFa's Administrator for doctoral studies (contact details below). 

3. Book a room for the half-time seminar

Remember to book a room for the seminar!

4. Announce the half-time seminar in the calendar

The half-time review should be announced in the KI and FyFa calendars on the website ki.se. This is done by the temp Communications Officer at FyFa, Ida Rutström. Please send her an email with the following information:

  • The date and time for your half-time seminar
  • Where the seminar will be held (what room)
  • The title of your work/your up-coming thesis
  • The name of your supervisor.
