The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology offers the opportunity to gain a doctoral degree (PhD) in two programmes. During the four years of PhD studies, students are required to collect credits through coursework, teaching, international publishing, conference participation and work on the doctoral project. The programmes end with a defence of the doctoral dissertation.

PhD Progress Review
Progress review of doctoral students at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology will take place on May 28-29, 2019.
The deadline for submitting the report is May 16th 2019 at 14.00. Please send the digitally signed documents to e-mail address: ttamm [ät] ut.ee.
There are two progress reviews in the first academic year: at the end of both first and second semester. Thus, autumn semester's progress review takes place at the beginning of spring semester and spring semester's review at the beginning of autumn semester. In the following years there is one progress review (assessment) that takes place after two semesters have been completed. The results of progress review will be described in ECTS credits and inserted into SIS.
The document titled Study Regulations regulates the process of progress reviews (clause V.5).
Before the review, please prepare the following documents:
1. The progress report describing the fulfilment of the individual study plan
2. List of the attended seminars (please include this in the section “Studies”)
3. Annex: a revised plan of research and study for the next year
These documents are saved as single PDF file and are uploaded to Study Information System.
Progress Review form
During the spring progress review, doctoral students ending the 2nd study year are asked to give a 15-minute presentation on the research and future plans. After their presentation, the discussion will be held with supervisor(s).
Evaluation arrangements of PhD students in the field of Science and Technology can be found on this page.
