Midway Evaluation

The midway evaluation is mandatory for all candidates, and is an opportunity to present and get feedback on your research.

Main content

As required by the Action Plan for PhD education at the University of Bergen, the department has implemented a midway evaluation (MWE) for all PhD candidates. All PhD candidates must complete the MWE at the halfway point of their PhD education, i.e. after 3 semesters for candidates without teaching duty and after 4 semesters for candidates with teaching duty.

As for the content of the MWE itself: The candidate should present the goals for the thesis, the results so far, and the way these results will contribute to the further work.

Procedures attached below. The midway report is sent to the candidate by the PhD coordinator, and should be submited at least one week before the evaluation.
