Academic sessions postponed
With regard to the scheduled PhD defences, inaugural lectures and farewell speeches, the Executive Board has decided not to hold any academic sessions until 6 April. In special cases, an exception to this may be made by the Rector Magnificus. For all exceptions, the number of attendees will be limited to a maximum of 30 or the session will take place online.
PhD candidates can contact the PhD office to schedule a new date. The request will be given priority and, if necessary, the defense could be rescheduled outside of normal working hours. This should, of course, be done in cooperation with the candidate’s supervisors. PhD candidates who have a defence scheduled after 6 April can also cancel it if it is already clear that they or members of their supervisory team and opposition cannot attend. The PhD office can be reached on weekdays from 9.00 to 13.00 at +31 (0)43 3883096/3882551 or by email
