Opponent’s travel costs
Your home faculty is, as a rule, responsible for the opponent’s travel and accommodation expenses.
For more information on opponents’ travel arrangements, please see page Arranging the public examination.
Public examination venue
Your home faculty is responsible for the booking costs of the venue of your public examination. When making the booking, don’t forget to include the name of your home faculty and your Custos.
For more information on booking the venue, please see page Arranging the public examination.
If you want to arrange a coffee service after the public examination, you must cover the costs of the service yourself. Arranging a coffee service is completely voluntary.
For more information on arranging a coffee service, please see page Arranging the public examination.
Agree on a dress code that best fits your budget. While a tailcoat and a black waistcoat are customary for men, a dark suit is also a perfectly fine option, so no need to rent a tailcoat if you do not own one. Women typically war a long-sleeve, high-necked short black dress or a two-piece suit. Set the dress code for the public examination with the members of the grading committee in good time before the event. Foreign opponents can borrow a gown from the university, should they so wish.
