The decision for approval and/or correction will be based on following criteria: 1) The candidate's capacity to read the primary literature necessary for his/her research; 2) The candidate's methodological skills and especially his capacity to draft a research plan and formulate his findings in a systematic and logic way; 3) The proposed project s value and relevance to the research profile of the Faculty and significant contribution to science. The Doctoral Committee may invite the supervisor and/or the PhD student for a discussion and/or presentation of the PhD thesis. The supervisor and the PhD student are entitled to be heard by the committee at their own request. Article 11. Adjustments to the PhD Proposal In case the PhD students wishes to deviate considerably from the proposed research design, or if he/she wishes to change the topic of the PhD thesis during the course of the project, the supervisor will request that the Doctoral Committee considers the adjusted project. The committee will follow the procedure outlined in article 10, paragraph 5 to 6. CHAPTER 4: Supervisor and supervisory committee Article 12.

As supervisor of a PhD student, the research expert will act as the official promotor of the student. He/she has the exclusive right to guide the PhD project and to evaluate its content considering articles 10 to 11 of these regulations and after consulting the PhD student. He or she will work together with the PhD student on the PhD application, the PhD proposal and submission of the PhD thesis, and will act as the promotor for the examination committee and during the PhD defence. At the same time a senior staff member of KU Leuven will be appointed as a substitute in case the promotor becomes unavailable. The group of research experts and KU Leuven senior staff members of the Faculty will act as supervisory committee for all PhD students. Article 14. The supervisor and co-supervisor Appointment In case no supervisor was appointed after admission of the student to the qualifying (predoctoral) or doctoral training programme, the candidate will search for a supervisor and prepare an application for the next meeting of the Faculty Council. Supervisors should hold a PhD degree and have sufficient expertise in the field of the PhD thesis. On recommendation of the supervisor the Faculty Council may also appoint a joint supervisor or a co-supervisor. In consultation with the supervisor, the joint supervisor or co-supervisor play an active role in guiding the PhD student. In the event that no supervisor has been appointed after the second meeting of the Faculty Council following the admission of the student to the qualifying (predoctoral) programme, the student will be heard. If no concrete plans to contact a supervisor are made, the Doctoral Committee can decide to terminate the student's PhD programme. The decision will be motivated and the PhD student will be informed. Article 15. The supervisor Duties 1) GUIDANCE The supervisor is expected to guide the PhD student along the requirements of the doctoral training programme. Special attention will be given to the PhD thesis, the participation at one international congress and the redaction of one international publication.

The Doctoral Committee may invite the supervisor and/or the PhD student for a discussion and/or presentation of the PhD thesis. Both the student and supervisor have the right to be heard by the committee and to be informed on the settlement of the complaint. The committee will account for every decision. CHAPTER 5: Doctoral training programme (PhD programme) Article 17. The Doctoral training programme The doctoral training programme is designed, not to overload students with an additional work load, to broaden and develop PhD student's competence to act as senior researchers. It intends to provide students with an engaging and challenging environment allowing them to participate to the ongoing academic discussion. Candidates can only be allowed to defend their PhD thesis if they have met doctoral training requirements. Exceptionally, candidates can be exempted from doctoral training by the Doctoral Committee. Candidates can only undertake doctoral training after admission by the Faculty Council. Article 18. Requirements of the doctoral training programme The doctoral training programme comprises of following components: - annual requirements - overall requirements The annual requirements comprise of at least: 1) Collaboration and attendance during the congress organised by the PhD School; 2) PhD proposal or progress report.

Students with a flexible route Students having professional or other engagements can send a request to the Doctoral Committee to be considered as a student with a flexible route. They add to their request a motivation explaining why it is still feasible, unless their other engagements, to still comply with the requirements of the doctoral training programme. A successful request will prolong the due date for the PhD proposal (article 10) and will be considered for the evaluation of the PhD student's progress (article 22). CHAPTER 6: The Doctoral Committee Article 20. General competence The Doctoral Committee of the serves in three capacities: - Programme Committee for the doctoral training programme; - Examination Committee for the doctoral training programme; - Mediation Committee for appointment of PhD students' supervisors.

This certificate is awarded if the PhD student can demonstrate completion of the doctoral training programme in accordance with the regulations published on the PhD School's website: In case a PhD student's progress seems to be insufficient for re-registration, the committee can decide to terminate the student's PhD programme. The candidate will be informed immediately after the decision. The committee will state her motives for the decision and the decision will be effectual after one month. In the meantime the student can request that the committee reconsider its decision, after submission of a remedial proposal. The student and his/her supervisor have the right to be heard by the committee. Only after the decision has become final, students can apply through the Faculty Council against decisions of the Doctoral Committee in its role as an examination committee. Article 23.

Next to the thesis the candidate makes a list of six extra theses that extend beyond the field of the dissertation. The PhD thesis must be written in Dutch, English, French or German. A Dutch summary must however always be added. The Faculty Board will decide on thesis format guidelines and other requirements for publication. All candidates subscribe the regulations regarding PhD thesis copyright: In particular, the University reserves the right of free, non-exclusive license to use a thesis for the purposes of education and scientific research. This right maintains, among other things, that a number of exemplars, set by the University, are to be delivered to it so that they are available in its libraries. Further, this right requires the submission of an electronic version of the thesis, including source files, for archival purposes as well as for the placement of the text for online availability by means of an 'open archive' or related system. CHAPTER 8: The examination committee and the PhD thesis defence Article 26. The examination committee The PhD thesis is assessed by an examination committee appointed by the Faculty Board. The Faculty Board also appoints its chair. A notification of the composition must be sent to the Rector. Members ex officio are the supervisor and in case this is a different person the KU Leuven member of the senior staff member responsible for the PhD student (see article 13, 2e paragraph).

Within six weeks the examiners should submit: 1) A short report on the PhD thesis; 2) Their preferences concerning the added theses; 3) Their availability for a meeting of the examination committee starting from six (or eight) weeks after the submission of the PhD thesis. For theses submitted between 1 June and 15 July, examiners must be given eight weeks. Article 30. Assessment of the PhD thesis In assessing the PhD thesis, examiners consider - whether it demonstrates independent research; - whether the thesis makes a significant contribution to science; - the candidate's methodological skills and especially his capacity to conduct research in a systematic, thorough and accurate way; - the candidate's capacity to formulate his findings in a systematic and logic way. Specific criteria are: the clarity of the research question, the originality of the adopted approach, the scholarly level of ordering, analysing and processing sources, the balanced structure of the thesis and the clarity of style. Article 31. Meeting of the examination committee The examination commission must decide whether to grant permission to the public defence between six (or eight) weeks and within three months of the submission of the PhD thesis. Otherwise, after having heard the candidate defend himself against possible comments and objections, they must grant permission iuxta modum or declare a dismissal of the PhD thesis within the same time frame. In case the committee cannot decide unanimously, the committee members must vote on the acceptability of the thesis. In case of equal votes, the chair decides. The committee may invite the supervisor and/or the PhD student. The PhD student is entitled to be heard by the committee at his/her own request. In case the candidate was granted permission iuxta modum, the examination commission decides on the date by which an alternative version of the PhD thesis must be submitted, and when a new meeting will be scheduled. The supervisor will discuss the objections of the committee with the candidate and give detailed instruction on how the PhD thesis must be reworked. In case the PhD thesis was dismissed, the candidate will be given the opportunity to rework the thesis and start the defence procedure for a second and final time according to article 27. In case the candidate was granted permission to the public defence the committee will decide on the date of defence, after having heard the candidate and the chairman of the faculty. At every meeting the chair makes a detailed report which is signed by all attendant members. The report also indicates the names of the absent members and the date of the meeting. Article 32.

The PhD student must provide the secretariat of the faculty with a summary of the thesis, a curriculum vitae and a short explanation on the three added theses as soon as possible. Article 34. PhD thesis defence The PhD thesis is defended in a public examination. In principle, the thesis defence takes place within 30 days of approval by the examination committee. No PhD thesis defences are held in July or August. At the commencement of the proceedings, the chair of the examination committee reads out the report stating that the PhD student has met all requirements and is eligible to defend his/her PhD thesis. The PhD student is then invited to briefly present his/her PhD in 20 minutes. Next, the supervisor presents his/her assessment and each examiner comments on the PhD thesis and the extra theses. The interventions of each member of the committee are limited to fifteen minutes. Finally the audience can comment on the thesis and the extra theses. The PhD student is given the opportunity to respond to all comments and questions. The defence lasts a maximum of two (2) hours. Article 35. Deliberation of the examination committee The PhD thesis defence is followed by a closed meeting of the examination committee. The examiners decide whether the candidate passes or fails. No grades or percentages are awarded. The examination outcome is immediately announced. Successful candidates will be awarded the degree of Doctor of Canon Law and/or Iuris Canonici Doctor (JCD).
