Procedures for dissertation defences and qualifying exams

Requirements for application for Qualifying exams and Dissertation or Thesis defence

All requests submitted to Qualifying and Dissertation Defence Exam boards should be registered in the New System (SIGA) as of 01 April 2017.

The process is entrusted first to the advisor and the advisee, and then to the PG Progamme departments, involving SPG/IG.

Pay attention to the new deadlines and the change in the process!
