Master's thesis

What topic should you choose? With whom and when should you begin consulting? What are the formal requirements? How can you be sure to avoid plagiarism? To answer these questions, first read our detailed thesis writing guidelines and check the thesis template.

The thesis writing process in a nutshell
  • 1st semester: read the thesis guidelines and check the template
  • 1st and 2nd semester: read, learn and think about what your topic might be
  • Early 3rd semester: contact your prospective supervisor and get the topic ready
  • Mid 3rd semester: register the topic via IS (see "Current semester" for exact deadlines)
  • Late 3rd until mid 4th semester: do the research and write the thesis
