At the UT Institute of Computer Science, all doctoral students are guaranteed a monthly income of at least 1200 euros (net). Most doctoral students work as junior researchers, all full-time doctoral students receive a doctoral grant and in some cases an additional scolarship. Specific conditions are agreed upon with each doctoral student seperately.
In the fall semester, a PhD student has to upload their attestation documents to SIS (ÕIS) the latest on 12th January. Interviews with the Attestation Committee take place on 26th January.
The following students have to submit their attestation documents in fall semester
In the spring semester we have two dates for attestation.
The following students have to submit their attestation documents in spring semester:
A PhD student must upload the following documents to the SIS system.
Both documenst have to be signed by the student and the supervisor(s). If the documents are signed on paper, then the scans should be uploaded to the SIS (ÕIS) system.
If submitted attestation documents contain sufficient information and the members of Attestation Committee have no additional questions to the PhD student, then the student is attested based on the documents. However, should the members of Attestation Committee have additional questions, the PhD student is invited for an interview on the dates above.
Student’s absence from the review is acceptable only on reasonable excuses. The absence must be negotiated at least a week prior to the attestation interview with the Chair of the committee prof. Raul Vicente Zafraga (email@example.com)
If the supervisor cannot participate on the interview he must send a written evaluation to the student’s progress. The evaluation must be sent to the Chair no later than one day in advance.
As the Attestation Committee has very limited time to go through all the attestation documents, the final schedule for interviews is announced the latest a day before the attestation interviews. Thank you for your understanding!

The process takes around 3 months (not counting the pre-reviewing):
