Evaluation of the thesis and doctoral examination
The examiner and the co-examiners form the Examination Committee. Each member of the Examination Committee evaluates the written doctoral thesis.
The minimum number of persons from the Examination Committee obliged to be physically present at any doctoral examination are the chairperson, the examiner and at least one co-examiner. Other members of the Examination Committee do not necessarily have to travel specially to attend the examination. They may participate via videoconferencing.
Each member of the Examination Committee hands in a written review about the thesis before the oral examination, including co-examiners who participate via videoconferencing.
