Prepare your PhD thesis defense

Prepare your PhD thesis defense

25.03.2024 09:00 – 17:00

A major step in a research career, the thesis defense requires careful, methodical preparation. This workshop will provide you with advice, tools, and support to help you prepare for this event. We will look at both the format and content of the presentation. You will get pointers on how to anticipate and prepare for the jury's questions. You will have the opportunity to discuss your own experience and the obstacles that arise at the end of your thesis to encourage mutual enrichment. Moreover, this workshop offers you the opportunity to practice presenting your thesis (in just a few minutes), and to receive feedback on how to improve your presentation skills.

The workshop is open and useful both to doctoral students finishing soon (to prepare themselves) and to those finishing in the longer term, as it enables you to reflect on what is expected of a doctoral student and to put the different stages of the thesis into perspective. In addition, presentation skills introduced during this workshop can be used in a wide range of situations faced by doctoral students (symposia, conferences, teaching, communication competitions, etc.).
