PhD defence ceremonies
These website pages are intended to familiarise PhD candidates with everything they need to know about defending their PhD thesis at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
You will find information about the admission requirements, the PhD defence procedure, the thesis, preparations for the defence ceremony and the day of the PhD defence. If you have any questions you can contact the Beadle’s Office.
Please note: Because of Covid-19, defences take place in an adapted form. However, preference is given to an online defence. Doing a defence on campus is allowed, but keep in mind that a maximum of 20 guests may be present.
