Defense Schedule Summer 2019

On this page, you can find a list of the defense slots in the months of June, July and August 2019. For each of these slots, one of the members of the Examinations Board has volunteered to chair a defense. Dates that are greyed out do not have any defense slots; note that there are no defense slots between 15 July and 26 August.

This page will be updated when slots are booked for defenses, showing the name of the student and the supervisor as an indication that that slot is not available anymore. Note that if a slot is shown as available on this page, it might be that the page has not been updated.

As soon as a candidate and a supervisor have agreed on a graduation date and picked one of the available slots in June or July, the supervisor should contact and request a booking of this slot. If it is still available, Tanja will reserve the slot and the slot determines

  1. the chair of the committee,
  2. the deadline for the student to hand in the thesis (viz. 21 days before the defense).

In case the defense should take place in the last week of August, the supervisor should add a motivaton to the request to book the slot, in which it is explained why this student cannot defend in June, July or September. The chair of the Examinations Board will decide whether the reasons are pressing enough to assign an August slot. 

You have to book a slot for your defense at the latest one month before the defense date, i.e., in order to book the defense slot on 11 June, you need to book it until 11 May. The slots will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.

After a slot is assigned, the chair of the committee and the supervisor get in touch to discuss the composition of the committee
