Milestone 2

The confirmation or defense of candidature

Abstract

A defense of your research or a Confirmation of Candidature or a colloquium may occur toward the beginning of your candidature, or toward the end. This is the point at which you present, discuss, and defend your research to a panel of research experts. You will convince them, on the basis of what you have written and what you have to say in your presentation and in response to their questioning of you, that you have indeed considered all the demands of a successful PhD research program from the outset of your research, or if it is a defense of thesis, that you have met them at the completion of your research.
