How does a diploma pass?

Diploma defense is perhaps the most important task facing the student during the entire period of study. Successful defense in many cases more influences the final grade for a diploma than even the work itself.

Forewarned is forearmed!

But how to perform successfully? First, you need to cope with anxiety, which is not so easy. However, as you know, forewarned is forearmed. After learning how the diploma defense goes, you can plan everything in advance and avoid unnecessary worries.

One or a team?

The admissions committee is formed from university professors, whose specificity is closely aligned with the future specialty of the student. Depending on the order of a particular university, the selection committee determines the order of protection. The student is either defended only before the selection committee, or his classmates are present as spectators.

Regulations and Illustrations

As a rule, the order of the speakers and the time allotted for the performance is determined in advance. The main task is to put his speech in the stated regulations.A student is usually given 7-10 minutes. Of course, it is difficult to put a 100-page job in 10 minutes, but graphic materials are used to help the student. By preparing the right posters and illustrations, you can save a lot of time.


After the speech, the commission is obliged to ask questions, but if your speech was informative, there is nothing to fear! You will be asked simple questions, for example: "What literature did you use?", "Why is this topic interesting to you?" etc.

Exciting waiting

When all the students perform, the admission committee will retire to discuss the grades, and here the student needs only, as they say, “wait and believe”.
