In special cases, the student has the right to request a certificate of defence and its outcome.
Applications in this case may be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org not earlier than 7 working days after the completed defence, from the SGH e-mail address, to which a scanned version of the certificate is sent after its preparation.
