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.
  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.



As of June 7, 2021, prioritization for COVID vaccinations has been lifted in Germany; please contact your family doctor or a physician specialist.
