After submission, the suggested reviewers have to be appointed by the doctorate board.

Both experts are requested to deliver their assessment within six weeks. This assessment includes the acceptance of the thesis and the doctoral student will be duly informed and requested to make an appointment with the head of the doctorate committee.

Please note: Dissertation and reviewers' grade proposals must be made available for examination for two weeks or for four weeks during semester breaks before you are allowed to defend your thesis.

The doctorate committee will be appointed by the doctorate commission and informed when the reviews are available for inspection.

A date for the disputation has to be agreed on and will be announced offically by the postgraduate office.

It is advisable for each doctoral student to contact each member of the doctorate committee in order to enquire whether they would be interested in a copy of the thesis.
