eDefence at Memorial


External Examiners

You can test your eDefence compatibility by clicking the button below. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Ruby Barron rbarron@mun.ca.

The School of Graduate Studies is committed to maximizing all available resources to meet the needs of Memorial's graduate students.  To this end, we have implemented a system to allow external examiners to attend a PhD oral defence remotely from anywhere in the world.

For less than half the cost of one examiner coming to St. John's, we can now virtually host all of our oral defences for an entire year.

The use of web-conferencing software, webcams and teleconferencing allow external examiners (and in some cases committee members) to actively participate remotely without impacting the traditional process of an oral defence.

What are the benefits?
