Information and instructions

Article 25
Small Defence

(1) A small defence is a defence of the first version of the dissertation thesis in front of a team of the department, where the student is scientifically working or where he or she belongs from the point of view of the topic of the dissertation thesis. In case of doubt the Dean will determine the relevant department.

(2) The student presents his or her work to the head of the department, who organizes a small defence without any unnecessary delay. The aim of the small defence is to evaluate whether the dissertation thesis meets the requirements imposed by the law on these papers, including checking the originality of the submitted thesis. For this purpose, the head of the department may request the assessment of the thesis by other experts.

(3) From a small defence, a record is made, indicating whether the thesis is recommended for defence, or for redrafting and re-submitting to another small defence. The record is handed over by the head of the department to the Dean immediately. The protocol of the results of checking the originality of the submitted thesis is annexed to the record.
