Follow-up group

In accordance with the principles of the University of Jyväskylä Graduate School for Doctoral Studies, every doctoral student has a follow-up group.  In Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy the group consists of the supervisors and an external member. The follow-up group is appointed in admission for doctoral studies. The task of the group is to support the doctoral student in order to advance the studies leading to a doctoral degree. Doctoral students can contact any member of the follow-up group to ask for a meeting in order to discuss the progress of their thesis work, supervision or other matters related to doctoral studies.
