|Contents:||Master thesis projects that start after Sept. 2015 are split in two phases of 15 + 25 EC, which we will refer to as Phase-1 and Phase-2. Projects that started before this time remain to use the old 40EC format.
Phase-2 (25 EC)
For Phase 1 see this website.
Work timeYou are advised to work full time (i.e. 5 days per week), but 4 days per week is also allowed. In that case, please note that your project takes 25% more time to finish. The second part comprises 25 ECTS (i.e. 17-18 weeks full-time).
ContentYou will complete (at least) the following items:
Phase-2 assessment criteria. Your thesis is usually assessed using the following criteria:
Talk to the COSC colloquium coordinator (Alison Liu) to reserve colloquium time and location for your defense.
For projects that started before November 2019: you need to document your evaluation in a Research Assessment Form, to be submitted to the student desk.
For projects that started in November 2019 or later: the assessment is done in OSIRIS Docent and the paper forms cannot be accepted anymore.
The assessment form can be found here.
End date and delay protocolPlease pay attention that if you cannot manage to complete the project by the planned end-date, you will still be evaluated on that date. If this results in an insufficient grade, or a “not completed” grade, with a valid reason, you are allowed to have an extension of maximum 1/3 of the nominal original length. Your grade will be capped on 8 (and therefore you can’t graduate Cum Laude). Please read the whole Delay Protocol; you can find it here.
Cum LaudeThe requirements to receive a cum laude include that your Phase-2 grade should be at least 8.5.
Previous thesis projectsIf you are curious about previous projects of fellow students, you can find them in the University repository, here.
I have completed my thesis, what next?If you have completed your thesis (that is, you have defended it and informed by your supervisor that you have passed this component), and you have gained 75 EC worth of courses, and completed your COSC colloquium obligation, in principle you are ready to graduate. You are not there yet, there are few more steps to do:
