Restart extension at the Faculty of Humanities - PhD
The Faculty of Humanities has its own arrangement for research fellows with lengthy absences. If you have had more than six months of continuous 100 per cent sick leave (with medical certificate) or parental leave, you may apply for one month's restart extension. The arrangement is only available for PhD-candidates employed as research fellows at the Faculty.
A restart extension will grant you one month additional extension to your employment period and is supposed to compensate for some of the time it takes to get back into your doctoral project after a lengthy absence.
Your application must be accompanied by statements of support from your supervisor and the Head of the Department. It is a requirement that you had satisfactory progress prior to the illness/parental leave.
The application is sent to the Research Section at the Faculty.
