Thesis Defence

There are recommendations for the handling of doctoral thesis defences during the COVID19 pandemic.
Please discuss with your supervisors and the faculty how your doctoral defence can be completed despite the necessary precautions.

Basically, there are three options:

  1. The defence is postponed to the time after the lifting of the contact restriction.
  2. The defence is carried out regularly (in a larger room where minimum distances can be maintained).
  3. The defence is conducted in whole or in part as a video conference.
