Welcome to the School of Science Master's Thesis infopages!
Please note the changes in the graduation practices from 31 December 2019 onwards!
The deadline for submitting the degree certificate request is the official date of graduation, which will be printed on the degree certificate.
You can submit your thesis for evaluation at the same time when submitting the request for degree certificate. The date of approval of the thesis will be the deadline for submitting the applications, although the approval of the thesis will not be processed by the Degree Programme Committee until after the deadline for submitting theses and applications for evaluation. The last possible date to complete the press release (maturity essay) and thesis presentation is the deadline of application.
Example: It is possible for you to graduate on 31 December 2019, because the official date of acceptance of the thesis will be registered as 31 December 2019, even though your master’s thesis will be processed by the Degree Programme Committee in January.
