The thesis is ready! Submitting the thesis

When your thesis is ready, arrange a schedule with the supervisor for the evaluation and approval of the thesis. The supervisor needs about a month to read the finished thesis and write a statement. The Degree Programme Committee approves and grades the thesis based on the statement(s) given by the supervisor and the advisor. The supervisor and advisor may write either a joint statement or separate statements. When submitting the thesis, you should take into consideration the Degree Programme Committee deadlines and possible graduation deadlines.

The thesis can be approved when:

  • The student is enrolled as attending.
  • The topic of the master’s thesis is approved and valid.
  • The thesis supervisor approves the thesis to be submitted.
  • The student has given a seminar presentation and completed the maturity essay.

The last possible date to complete the thesis presentation and maturity essay is the deadline for submitting theses for evaluation.

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.

Even though the theses are submitted for approval only in electronic format, the supervisor might still require theses bound in black covers (binding model pdf). The student must agree upon this with the supervisor.
