An oral exam by videoconference
An oral exam by videoconference is acceptable for one of the examiners.
–  The examiner concerned ensures that his/her original report is signed and returned within the given deadline. Dir. Art. 18, al. 4
–  The expert must be isolated in order to ensure the confidentiality of the examination.
–  Should another examiner be prevented from attending the examination as a result of unforeseen circumstances of a serious nature, the Doctoral School, via the Doctoral Students’ Office, can exceptionally accept an oral exam by video conference for both examiners.
–  An oral exam by teleconference is not accepted.
