Currently, the process of reviewing the propositions after you submitted them in Hora Finita, takes place outside the Hora Finita environment. After you submit the propositions, the Doctoral Service Centre contacts you via your WUR outlook-email and everything about the propositions is discussed and changed over email correspondence.

When your propositions are rejected, the Doctoral Service Centre emails you on the steps to take after rejection in order to get a final approved version. When a final version is approved, this approval is registered in Hora Finita.

The current process for reviewing propositions is as follows:
