Registration for master's thesis

Students following the prescribed study programme are automatically registered for the Master’s thesis in the fourth semester. However, you are responsible for checking, that your registration is correct.

The registration takes place at this point in time, as this gives you the possibility to carry through three exam attempts in your Master’s thesis within your maximum duration of studies.

If your maximum duration of studies is extended or shortened, your (automatic) registration will depend on your maximum duration of studies. 

It is also possible to write the Master's thesis on the third semester of the Master's programme, if you at the end of your second semester are expected to have passed 60 ECTS corresponding to the first academic year.

Thesis supervisor

Even though you will automatically be registered for the Master's thesis, please notice that you need to apply for a supervisor.
You can find all the relevant information about applying for a supervisor under the menu item, 'Supervisor"

Approval of preliminary title and thesis statement

Your supervisor must formally approve of your preliminary title and thesis statement. This means that immediately before you begin writing your Master’s thesis, you will be asked to upload your preliminary title and thesis statement to WISEflow, where it will await formal approval from your supervisor. You can find the relevant deadline in the table under 'Deadlines'.

It is perfectly acceptable for the preliminary title and thesis statement to be identical to the description you submitted via the online form in connection with your request for / choice of supervisor, and you may change your title and thesis statement in collaboration with your supervisor on an ongoing basis while writing your Master’s thesis.
