Congratulations, you are on the home stretch! The right to defend a doctoral dissertation in a public examination means that your dissertation meets the minimum requirements and that your faculty has granted you the right to have your dissertation printed and to start the preparations for your public examination. The Faculty Council decides on granting permission to defend the dissertation at a public examination based on statements by the preliminary examiners. Please note that the public defence must be held no later than a year after receiving the right to defend the dissertation.
