The quality assurance of the Ph.D.-educations follows the same overall principles for evaluations and reporting in the quality system as first and second cycle studies does. To ensure the Ph.D.-educations' particular characteristics, separate guidelines for completion of course evaluations and programme evaluations on Ph.D.-level has been made.
Progress reporting and midway evaluations of the individual Ph.D.-candidate are central elements in the work with quality. In addition, anonymous candidate surveys are completed at institutional level. There is an annual case to the board regarding the throughput in the doctorate educations.
