Half-time review at FyFa

On this page we describe 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.

1. Notification of half-time review

No later than four weeks before your half-time seminar you notify the department of an up-coming half-time review by submitting the first part of Form 5 (Notification). The doctoral student and the supervisor fill in part 1 and give the form to the administrator of doctoral education at the department. A Ladok transcript should be attached.

The director for doctoral studies appoints the half-time committee by signing the form, where after the doctoral student can send documents to the appointed 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 to see which documents should be submitted.

3. Book a room for the half-time seminar

Remember to book a room.

4. Announce the half-time seminar in calendar

The half-time review should be announced in the KI and FyFa calendars on the website ki.se. This is done by the Communications Officer at Fyfa, Linda Nilsson. Please send her an e-mail with the following information:

  • The date and time of your half-time seminar
  • Link to Zoom
