COVID-19: Exceptional regulation concerning PhD defences

As part of the measures to control the COVID-19-pandemic, courses, lectures and exams are currently suspended. The guidelines of the University of Bonn allow alternative examinations with explicit consent by the examinees.

The Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Agriculture has developed a procedure (referring to that of the Faculty of Mathmatics and Natural Sciences), which allows a PhD defence to be conducted using video conferencing software such as „Zoom“. The PhD student has to be situated in rooms of the University of Bonn.

A prerequisite for this is the consent of the PhD student and all authorized examiners. You will find the corresponding forms under the heading "Downloads"

Further information is available in the handout „Virtual PhD Defence due to §11 of the Doctoral Degree Regulations“. Please inform the docorate office, if you want to conduct a virtual PhD defence.

Additionally the doctorate office provides „Information and tips to carry-out zoom PhD defenses at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bonn“.

Unfortunately, social gatherings as well as personal congratulations following the PhD defence are not allowed at the university because of the risk of infection.

For further questions please contact the respective doctorate office.
