Evaluation of the dissertation
Reviewers evaluate the dissertation individually and independently of one another within a defined period of time and propose a mark. The dissertation and the reviews are made available to all faculty members in the dean's office for a certain period. Opinions on the dissertation can be sent to the examination panel. Once this period is over, the candidate is notified as to whether the dissertation was accepted or rejected.
The dissertation can usually be returned to the candidate once for revision of any deficiencies. If the dissertation is finally rejected, the doctoral process is concluded with the verdict "Not passed". A rejected dissertation may not be re-submitted for a doctoral degree.
