Time to defend your thesis, what to do?

This is a course for students who are about to or have just defended their PhD-thesis. During three days, we discuss everything you need to know prior to the defense, and what happens next. For the workshops, we invite lecturers both from the university and outside academia, to hold a brief introduction and, above all, participate in the discussion.
