Hora Finita

How do I set the PhD defence ceremony date, time and location in Hora Finita?

Updated on

Once date, time and location for the PhD defence ceremony are agreed upon outside of Hora Finita, the Office of the Registrar can set the date, time and location in Hora Finita.

Step 1: Log in

Log in to Hora Finita with your U-/Z-account via Surfcontext.

Step 2: Navigate to the PhD project page.

  1. Click on the 'PhD projects' tab.
  2. Then click on the tab 'PhD projects' below it.

Here you will find an overview of all the PhD Projects. Search for and select the appropriate candidate.

We recommend searching using the 'PhD student' field.

Step 3: Set the date

Click on the 'Defence' tab

In the 'Date and location' section select/fill in the appropriate data.


Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on 'Save'.

An email will be sent to the PhD candidate with the information that the date for the PhD defence ceremony has been set and reminding them that a title page must be submitted for review.

An email will be sent to the Faculty promotion coordinator, the PhD supervisor and co-supervisor, informing them of the PhD defence ceremony date.

The PhD supervisor will be emailed with a request to propose a Doctoral Examination Board.
