Yearly Follow Up
The purpose of the follow-up, which consists of several parts, (economical, courses, research plan, supervisors etc), is to monitor the study progress of the individual student. The intention is also to discuss general progress, potential problems, and future perspectives.
Yearly seminar + follow up discussion
MTC monitors the progress of all its graduate students through two compulsory mechanisms, which as a rule take place at the same time.
- A yearly student seminar of 10-15 minutes (MTC-rules) and
- A yearly follow-up discussion (HSV*-rules), which is a subsequent discussion between the student, the supervisor and the chairperson from the MTC faculty.
The student seminar can cover both previous achievements as well as future plans. The discussion with the MTC chairperson should follow immediately after the yearly seminar together with the main supervisor. Following the discussion, the yearly follow up form should be filled in and signed by all parties and given to the administrator of the Third Level (postgraduate) Studies.
These compulsory student seminars/follow-ups are to be held with one year intervals, except when the student is having her/his half-time control or Licentiate/PhD exam in the near time range. However, it is important that even if a seminar is not held, due to leave of absence or other applicable circumstances, the yearly follow up (without seminar) is still mandatory as long as the student is registered at MTC.
Yearly follow up without seminar
The KI form 4 is used and filled in by the main supervisor together with the student. The form must be handed to the administrator of the Third Level (postgraduate) Studies, no later than the 1st of May (students admitted on a spring semester) resp. 1st of December (students registered in the fall).
