Sometimes changes to the supervision arrangements are needed during the doctoral thesis project. For example, when your supervisor retires or transfers to another university, or when the topic of your thesis transforms, you might need a change of supervisor. Sometimes new supervisors are also added to the supervision team during the project.

The practices related to changes in the supervision arrangements vary a little from faculty to faculty. If the need arises to make changes to your supervision team, please be in touch with the doctoral student services of your home faculty. Contact information for the faculty doctoral student services is available in the article Services for doctoral education.
