PhD Students from XXIX to XXXII Cycle will¬†give final examination under the Administrative center of¬†Turin¬† University, where the Consortium was founded.
Some basic info follows, and more specific details will be given each year to PhD students.
(1) PhD Students will present to¬†the Board a relation on PhD activity of the last year of Doctorate.
(2)¬†The PhD Steering Committee will evaluate these relations before the legal end of the Cycle.
(3)¬†If the PhD student is admitted to the final examination the Commitee chooses 2 referees (external to the Board) and establishes a date for the PhD Students to give the final version of their dissertation to the referees.
(4)¬†The Referees will evaluate the dissertation – possibly in a month time, following a simple¬†¬†REVIEWER FORM.¬†With their evaluation, referees may either (4a) admit the dissertation as it is(or with minor revisions) ¬†to public defense or (4b) ask for major ¬†revisions to be completed within a period of no more than 6 months. Upon resubmission, the referees have one month to review the corrections and submit their final report. Every dissertation is admitted to the public defense at this stage.
(5)¬†Within 30 days after receiving the referees‚Äô final reports, the Steering¬†Committee will nominate an¬†examination board whose members will receive an official invitation from the University of Torino.¬† The public defense of the dissertation will be held before the examination board within 3 months of their nomination.
