Time limits on DTC PhDs

C. J. Kerr made this Freedom of Information request to University of Cambridge

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for C. J. Kerr to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear University of Cambridge,

Please provide copies of any and all policies and procedures by which the university informs students on Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) PhD courses, and/or their PhD supervisors, that the 4 year time limit on PhD submission starts from the beginning of the course and not from the beginning of research on the subject of the PhD after one year, and that there is no fast-track process for extending this limit to five years so as to match the time available to other PhD students for their research.

Please also provide copies of any and all policies and procedures for checking whether this information has been received and understood.

If these policies or procedures have changed since January 2009, please provide copies of any previous versions which have been valid at any time since January 2009.

Yours faithfully,

C. J. Kerr
