Formal requirements and preparations

Information about the formal requirements and general preparations you need to know before your digital oral exam or digital Master's thesis defense.

  • You must turn your camera on. Your face must be visible for the duration of the exam.
  • Audio or video recordings of the exam are not allowed.
  • Be ready for the exam! Be ready at least 15 minutes before your scheduled exam time.
  • If you want to request a grade explanation upon receiving your grade, this must be done immediately.
  • If there are technical difficulties during the exam, then the department/faculty responsible for the exam will decide what to do (re-start your exam, give you extra time, re-schedule your exam, etc.).

Audience for Master's thesis defense

If your faculty allows audiences to attend Master's thesis defenses, it is your decision as exam candidate whether to have an audience, and if so who to invite. This must be discussed and agreed upon between you and your department in advance of the exam.

The Zoom meeting link should not be openly published or shared on the web, as this drastically increases the chances for Zoom bombing, where unwanted participants join a meeting or lecture.
