Timeline to Degree

Students may seek general and academic advice from the Executive Officer and Deputy Executive Officer. Additionally, the Director of Graduate Studies (currently Prof. Iakovos Vasiliou, serves as official academic advisor to all students until they are Advanced to Candidacy. Students are also encouraged to seek general academic advice (e.g. about course offerings and dissertation topics) from other members of the faculty.

Once the student is Advanced to Candidacy and registers for Dissertation Supervision, his or her prospectus sponsor or dissertation supervisor will serve as the student's advisor. This faculty member will be the student's adviser until graduation unless the student specifically requests a change. Such a request must go through the Program Office.
