The Master's thesis is due in the 4th semester of your Master studies. You don't need to register for a Master's thesis course. All 4th semester Master students are registered automatically for it.
In order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony, you have to submit your Master’s thesis by May 24th, 2019 at the latest. Otherwise, you must submit your thesis by the end of the semester (August 31st) and you will receive a 'walkthrough' diploma at the ceremony.
Please note that special rules apply in the MA International Relations (for details see here).
If you need to extend your studies please do so by July 15th, 2019.
Master's Thesis Regulations
The cover page needs to show the title of the Master’s Thesis, the University’s name, the month and year of submission, the name of the Student and the names of the two Reviewers.
Furthermore, the Thesis needs to contain a signed and dated Statutory Declaration (click on the sample below) that states the thesis is your independent work and has not been submitted elsewhere for conferral of the degree. The signature must be your original.
Further regulations such as number of pages and formatting can be found (where applicable) in the handbook of the respective program or discussed with the academic advisor / thesis reviewer.
Submission of the Master's Thesis
The process of Thesis submission starts with this form. At the end of this form, you will be redirected to Moodle, where you will upload your Thesis. Please be aware that the thesis can only be submitted once.
