promotie


conferral of a doctorate; pursuit of a doctorate; defence ceremony and presentation of the doctoral degree; process through which a doctorate is earned

To be 'admitted to the promotie' means being allowed to pursue a doctorate. But the ceremony is also called a promotie. Under no circumstances should this be translated as 'promotion', which is what happens when a valued employee is given a better job and a raise in salary.
