Announcements of Doctoral Defenses

An oral defense can be held via conference call. The dissertation reports (by the reviewers) and confirmation of the date of the oral defense (by the doctoral candidates) must be received by the doctoral office four weeks before the oral defense.

The disputation is open to the faculty if the doctoral students have not objected to it. However, the audience has no right of participation.

Degree Award Ceremony

Award ceremonies take place both at the end of the summer semester as well as towards the end of the winter semester. The ceremony is open to all those who have successfully completed the oral examination. Publication does not have to have taken place yet.

The next graduation ceremony will take place as part of the Master's examination ceremony at the end of the summer semester.
