Doctoral thesis

The doctoral thesis consists of an original research work created by the PhD candidate in a field of knowledge included in the PhD programme. The thesis can be written and defended in Spanish, Basque or English.

Thesis defence procedure

  • Once the thesis has been completed, the PhD candidate will apply for authorisation from the Academic Committee to begin the thesis defence procedure. Previous explicit approval set down in a reasoned assessment report from the thesis supervisor is required to begin this procedure. 
  • The Academic Committee will request two reasoned reports from PhDs with proven research experience in the field of study related to the thesis. These reports, which expressly give approval to proceed to defence of the thesis, must be submitted within two months. 
  • In the event that contradictory assessment reports or observations are submitted by the PhDs, the Academic Committee may request new assessment reports from expert PhDs in the field of study related to the thesis. 
  • The PhD candidate will simultaneously deposit the required number of unbound copies of the thesis (as well as in digital format) at the General Secretariat. They must be duly dated and signed by the PhD candidate and the thesis supervisor. An abstract in digital format should also be submitted to be included in the university’s databases and repositories, together with the required number of CVs.

  • The public display period will begin on the day after the thesis is submitted to the General Secretariat and all the requirements for the defence procedure have been completed. 
  • Applications for International Mention in the PhD degree, as described in Article 15 of these regulations, should be submitted together with the copy of the thesisUpon completion of the deposit period, the Academic Committee will examine all the reports received and either accept the request and propose authorisation from the DIRS PhD Commission to proceed with the defence of the thesis or reject it. In the case of rejection, the reasons must be duly stated. The Academic Committee may also require that the PhD candidate revise the thesis and postpone the defence until it has been re-examined. 
  • The DIRS PhD Commission will study all the reports received, including the allegations during the public display period and will grant authorisation to proceed to the defence or reject the thesis, providing duly stated reasons. The Academic Committee of the programme and the PhD candidate will be duly notified of the decision and, if applicable, the latter will be required to revise the thesis for re-examination.
