PhD defence and certificate

If the assessment committee’s recommendation of your PhD thesis is positive, you and your principal supervisor can begin planning the defence. Together, you are responsible for:

  • booking the venue for the defence (does not need to be at UCPH)
  • if necessary, helping the assessors make travel arrangements. However, this is in principle the assessors own obligation.

Be aware that you must inform the Graduate School about the date and time of the defence by submitting the form below at least three weeks before it takes place.
