Our proposals for the
Thesis review time
According to new rules the PhD candidate must submit his final thesis to a reviewer committee and then reviews will check it and will give their feedback. This process is very lengthy and there is not any fixed time set for completion of this task. We sill suggest to authorities to make this process quick and easy so that students do not waste their time.
Relaxation in PhD extension
If a student due to any reason is not able to complete his PhD within 3 years, then he must be allowed further time to complete his PhD, off course after 3 years his scholarship can be stopped but on his own expenses time must be allowed to him to complete his PhD students.
Emails in English
Since most of the international students do not understand Italian much and emails they received mostly are not read with much attention. These emails contain valuable information and time to time rule changes and other important things. Changes related to Phd are also conveyed through emails sometimes in Italian and sometimes in English. So my focus will be to implement this rule to have emails in English along with Italian.
GTT transportation rule
PhD students much be considered students when they are enrolled in PhD studies, because when we go to GTT office to make annual card they do not treat as student due to our age, which normally exceeds the limit of 26. We want to change this rule and if any student is enrolled in PhD and he provides prove of his enrollment then he must be treated as common students and he must be provided a annual GTT card with discount price just like others who are less than 26.
Exchange and mobility programs
Mobility programs must be increase so that PhD students get more opportunity to do research activities in other countries/universities to increase their research and technical skills. All PhD students no matter they are on scholarship from Scudo or some other international agencies must have the same opportunities for departmental funds and mobility programs.
