Colloquia are held regularly as part of the doctorate. All doctoral candidates should report on the results of their dissertation project at least once a year at the colloquium. The presentation of the dissertation at a colloquium, which is headed by professors, serves quality assurance purposes.
The curricular part of the doctorate should be completed within three years.
UZH strives to ensure that the same quality standards apply to all doctoral candidates. The aim is to ensure that doctoral candidates pursuing an individual doctorate can also carry out their dissertation project according to the standards of structured programs.
Doctoral candidates are appropriately integrated into the executive committees of the doctoral programs, for example as representatives of the doctoral candidates within a program with the right to vote.
