After your dissertation has been reviewed and accepted, your disputation, i.e. your defence, will take place. It will take place after the two-week display of your dissertation and, if possible, during the lecture period.

  • Please coordinate the date and time of your disputation with all four examiners and inform the doctoral office accordingly. The doctoral office takes care of the chair and the room for your disputation.
  • Please prepare a thesis paper and send the file (at the latest three weeks before the planned disputation date) by mail to the Doctoral Office. The design and extent of the thesis paper are up to you. The thesis paper will be sent to the members of your examination board together with the official invitation.

If you wish, you can carry out a technical check before your disputation. Please make an appointment at the Doctoral Office.
