Defense Schedule Summer 2020


On this page, you can find a list of the defense slots in June and July 2020.
There will be several available defense slots in the last week of August (24-31 August). These will be added in the second half of May.

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 10 July and 24 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 the slot is no longer available.

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 the MoL team and request a booking of this slot. If it is still available, they 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).


Please noteThe slots in the last week of August are reserved for students who really are not able to defend in June/July or in September.

In case the defense should take place in the last week of August, the supervisor should add a motivation to the request to book the slot. 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 before 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.
