Change in the group of supervisors

The composition of the supervisor group is a matter between the PhD student and the principal supervisor. It is possible to apply for changes of supervisors.

When would you make changes in the group of supervisors?

  • If your principal supervisor is no longer employed at the faculty.
  • If your project has taken a turn and you need other professional skills in the group of supervisors.
  • If a person has contributed significantly to the supervision and needs to be added to the supervisor group as a co-supervisor.
  • If the supervisor is disqualified due to legal incapacity e.g. family relations or any other close personal or financial ties.
