Step 1 Re-enroll as a PhD student. In order to re-enroll, you will receive an e-mail from the student administration on your student e-mail account. Re-enrollment is obligatory but free of charge. Once the date of your defence is known, the studentadministration will contact you with regards to the final payment of the registration.
Step 2 Preparation of the doctoral defence (i.a. evaluation doctoral thesis by doctoral committee, applying for approval by the doctoral school, applying for approval of the jury constitution, invitation jury members,....).

Start making these preparations in time (about 6 months before you plan to defend):

  • For approval doctoral school logbook:
    • Submit your completed doctoral school checklist/logbook, including all proofs, to the coordinator of the doctoral school you belong to (DS BS&H: Ilse Van Damme; DS M&LS + DS S&T: Stefanie Kerkhofs).
Step 3 Please inform at least 6 weeks before your scheduled defence the student administration about your defence (Saskia Bas)
Step 4 Print doctoral thesis/invitations/announcements: Start with this procedure at least 5 weeks before you want to send your final thesis to the members of the jury.
