Study Record Book
Within the framework of the program, a mutual responsibility is established between the PhD student and her/his supervisor for all phases of qualification leading to the doctorate. The IPK Graduate Program forms the basis for a target-oriented and structured progression of the PhD work and doctoral study. To facilitate the organization of the PhD study each PhD student keeps a Study Record Book to provide evidence of his/her mandatory attendance of the modules such as lectures within the IPK Graduate Program. The research proposal, the corrected and updated research proposal and the annual reports are integral parts of the Study Record Book. Therefore, each PhD student is advised to keep a part of the Study Record Book as an electronic file, while a hard copy is required for those parts/pages of the Study Record Book that need to be approved and signed.
The Study Record Books will be checked on a random basis.
