Defending Your PhD Thesis

This section provides information about defending your PhD thesis at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

PhD Defence Procedure

In order to be admitted to the PhD defence procedure, a number of forms (1 through 3) must be completed in stages and submitted to the Beadle’s Office. This administrative procedure takes place through Hora Est, the online registration system of the Beadle’s Office. The forms must be accompanied by the required signatures and enclosures: a certified copy of the qualification (if obtained elsewhere than the EUR), proof of ID and – if relevant – an application for exemption stating the reasons.
