  • Supervision and Guidance: it is recommended to make an agreement with the supervision regarding subject, time plan, members of the team and the respective obligations
  • Completing your degree: a document in the form of a monograph or a collection of articles have to be submitted to the department's graduation office, which will be reviewed by a comitee and, if approved, an appointment for the oral examination can be made.
