PhD candidates registered before 2014-2015, and whose doctorate research is regulated by the ULB PhD regulations in force from 2013-2014, may benefit from certain transitional measures specified in art. 35, al. 2 et 3. Those transitional measures refer to the old version of the ULB PhD regulations, approved on the 1st of July 2013 and non amended yet.
The Académie universitaire Wallonie-Bruxelles’ regulatory framework and the general study regulations defined the general framework for PhD and doctoral training. They haven’t been in force from 2013-2014, except for PhD candidates registered before the academic year 2013-2014 and who chose to pursue their PhD according to previous regulations (art. 35, al. 1).
