Annual PhD progress meeting

PhD candidates with the status of an employee have an annual assessment interview as defined by their institute. PhD candidates without the employee status do not have an annual assessment interview. However, because it is highly important to monitor the progress of your PhD journey, all candidates pursuing a PhD degree at Utrecht University are required to have an annual PhD progress meeting with their supervisory team and mentord(s). We encourage PhD candidates with employee status to combine this with the annual assessment interview. Please note that the form and instructions for the annual PhD progress report are different from those for the annual assessment interview of your institute.
