PhD Ceremony Live stream

100% online ceremonies will be streamed live on this WURtv channel .

A public defence, which takes place in the Aula, also when there are opponents participating online, is streamed via Aula tv click here.

The broadcasting will start around five minutes before the actual ceremony. Until that time this link will not work properly. Visitors can be asked for login credentials and then engage an error screen. When they go to this URL within five minutes before the official start, the link will work properly and they don’t need to log in.

About an hour or two after the defence via the WURtv homepage the recording can be found on the homepage, or by searching for the name of the candidate.
