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