Policy passed at the Ordinary General Meeting on 2004-06-05
PhD research can naturally take longer than predicted. There should be no national policies penalising students who take longer than some arbitrary standard to complete, or those who take longer due to personal circumstances, financial circumstance or individual needs. Universities should provide more support than penalties.
NPC will provide individual members with information should they need it.
