    It is important that you read the course description that refers to the specific semester, where you will be writing your bachelor’s project, as small adjustments can be made from year to year.

    Important deadlines: Formal requirements and deadlines

    The bachelor’s project must be handed in via both WISEflow and Blackboard.

    The final grade will be based upon the evaluation of the thesis itself by an external examiner and the supervisor.

    Registration

    Registration

    The deadline for registration is on December 2 at noon. You register via the registration form in the semester before the project writing commences (always spring semester). The form is only active during the registration period.

    Shortly after the information meeting in November, you must fill in a  registration form to choose your topic and/or supervisor.

    Supervisors and topics will then be allocated by the series coordinators and students will receive the information during December. Please note, we cannot always allocate the preferred supervisor.

    Submission

    WISEflow

    You will receive an email from WISEflow, when it is possible to upload your bachelor's project. The project must be uploaded via the WISEflow system.

    Once you have uploaded your bachelor's project, it is not possible to withdraw it. It is therefore very important that you make absolutely sure that you are uploading the correct version.

    The flow is a group flow. If you have not previously tried to upload an assignment in WISEflow as a group, please read and follow the instructions

    If you write an individual bachelor's project, you must upload this as a 'single-person-group' (”enkeltmandsgruppe”).

    The bachelor's project incl. appendices must be uploaded as one PDF-file via ”Besvarelse”. It is possible to upload additional material, which is not in PDF format, under "Appendix/Bilag".

    Blackboard

    You must upload an electronic version (in PDF format) to Blackboard on each series’ Blackboard page/group. Note that no student number must appear anywhere in the version uploaded to Blackboard.

    Read more about deadlines etc. here: Formal requirements and deadlines.

    Group project

    The Bachelor's thesis can be prepared in groups of no more than 3 students.

    For group projects, it is a requirement that the individual student's contribution can be clearly separated for individual assessment purposes. The requirement must be formulated so that the individual student is responsible for the independent preparation of half of the assignment (by groups of 2 students) or one third of the assignment (by groups of 3 students), apart from the joint introduction and joint conclusion.
