How to fill it:

  • Plan for Entire Studies - overall study plan
    Click on Edit the plan for entire studies - this is a space for your plan for entire studies lay-out.
    Describe the focus of your research and its predicted course. Write down where and what, or in co-operation with whom you intend to publish. Specify what conferences or lectures you want to attend, or what stays you are about to take.
    (You can also schedule a plan for registration of courses in particular semesters - however, this information will be given in detail in the semestral content of the ISP).
    This is ment to be filled only once at the beginning of your PhD study.
  • Semestral Content of Study Plan
    Click on Edit the semestral content - in each section, fill in the details of a given semester
    What you do when preparing the PhD thesis, how your work on the publications / articles continues, what forums / conferences / lectures you plan to visit, or what kind of internships you intend to visit.
    As soon as you register courses/subjects for a given semester in the IS Registration section, their list will also be displayed in the ISP agenda under "Studied subjects overview".
    This is ment to be filled before beginning of each semester.
  • Evaluation of Semestral Content ISP
    Student's feedback - at the end of each semester you will evaluate if you managed to fulfill all you intend in the Semestral content or you will explain what and why you didn't fulfill.
    This is ment to be filled before end of each semester.
  • Approval of ISP and Evaluation
    Your supervisor has to approve your suggestion of the plan for Entire studies, your suggestion of the Semestral content and the Evaluation report.
    The Doctoral Board of the study programme you study in has to approve your suggestion of the plan for Entire studies (once it is approved by the supervisor) and also check your ISP at least once a year.
Changes:
In case of serious changes in the course of your studies, your plan for entire studies can be changed. However, such a change requires a new approval of your supervisor and of the Doctoral Board.
If any changes to your semestral content appear, you can explain them at the end of the given semester via Student’s feedback (in the part with the Semestral content), before your supervisor evaluates your fulfilment of the suggested ISP semestral content.
