Where will the defense take place?

Defenses of doctoral theses may take place in person, per video conference(Webex) or in a hybrid format, provided all involved parties agree with the chosen format. If the commission and you meet in person it will be on the premises of the Freie Universität Berlin. The department´s conference room is used very frequently for these occasions. And the institutes or Central Institutes have their own conference or seminar rooms which are often used for oral examinations as well. Rooms have to be booked by a member of the faculty, preferably the chair of your doctoral commission.
