May I sit in on someone else´s defense?
Yes, you may, provided you have obtained prior consent of the respective doctoral candidate.
If you´d like to sit in on a defense, please get in touch with the Early Career Support. You will be provided with the email addresses of the doctoral candidates whose defenses will take place in the near future and can ask them. Since the doctoral candidates have the right to exclude the public from their defense and should not be pressurized into revising their decision, the candidates themselves will inform you of time and place of their defense - if they agree with your participation.
