Announcements of Doctoral Defences

Attendance examinations at the UoC in the summer semester 2020 can only be carried out if the hygiene and infection prevention regulations of the UoC are observed. An oral defence can be held via conference call.

The dissertation reports (by the reviewers) and confirmation of the date of the oral defence (by the doctoral candidates) must be received by the doctoral office four weeks before the oral defence.

The disputation is open to the faculty if the doctoral students have not objected to it. However, the audience has no rights of participation. However, physical presence and personal contacts on the campus should be minimized in summer 2020.

Degree Award Ceremony

At the University of Cologne, all public events until September 2020 have been cancelled, so that the date of the next doctoral announcement has not yet been fixed.
