Hora Finita, the PhD track and defence procedure

To be admitted to a PhD track, several steps must be completed. This administrative procedure takes place through Hora Finita, this online registration system guides PhD candidates from their admission to their PhD track to the submission of their doctoral dissertation.

What is Hora Finita?

Hora Finita is the registration service for PhD candidates and supervisors of the Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Erasmus University Medical Center (Erasmus MC). All processes related to the PhD track – admission, progress monitoring, submission doctoral dissertation, and preparation for the public defence – run through this system.

Hora Finita offers guidance in completing and fulfilling all mandatory aspects in a promotional trajectory. The system notifies you when you need to take action.
