VET 421 Midterm evaluation and VET420 Midterm course are mandatory, and must have been taken by the time you have completed a maximum of two full years of study.
The midterm evaluation aims to stimulate you to get started with the publication and compilation of the doctoral dissertation as early as possible. The evaluation is also intended to motivate you and your supervisors to continue the work and identify elements that need follow-up.
You must present your project in writing and orally, and inform about your progress in relation to the plan for an evaluation group. The evaluation group will assess your academic status and progress in your doctoral thesis, and provide feedback on the prescribed form (Form 2.4) to you, the supervisor and the department.
You must have passed the midterm evaluation before you may take the VET421 Midterm course.
On the course the following topics will be presented: NMBU's procedures for submission and defense of dissertation, the writing of the PhD thesis, supervisor - student, roles and relationship, and co-authors' declarations.
