Your Upcoming PhD Defense – Lunch Meeting

Tuesday, 10th of November 2015 – 12:30 - 13:30 – Ravelijn, RA 3334

One of the last steps to obtaining your doctoral degree is to defend your dissertation. Once you have finalized your dissertation, you must schedule and announce your defense. During this lunch three PhDs will tell you about what to do in the final stage of your PhD program. They will share their experiences and provide you with some advice on do’s and don’ts. During this meeting we will provide you with a free sandwich lunch.


Date: Tuesday, 10th of November 2015

Time: 12:30 - 13:45

Venue: Ravelijn, RA 3334
