The Student Union of LUT? The student card?

Trains and buses do not offer discounts for doctoral students. Food on student price or services of YTHS (FSHS =Finnish Student Health Service) are not available either. This is why the voluntary student union membership fee is lower for doctoral students.

Supervision Plan

LUT Doctoral School recommends that a supervision plan is made at the very beginning of the doctoral studies and updated when needed. The plan helps to communicate the general principles of good supervision and offers a tool to outline the supervision process from the student's and the supervisor's point of view.

The supervision plan also explains the responsibilities of the student, the supervisor(s) and other possible parties involved.

The supervision plan is now part of the preliminary study and research plan (see LUT Doctoral School model available in the top left-hand corner section of this page).

Doctoral Research Assessment Tool

The student and the supervisor can use the doctoral research assessment tool when discussing the progress of the dissertation manuscript. The research assessment tool provides common frame and terminology for discussions.

LUT Doctoral School recommends the assessment tool for all students and supervisors.
