Final Work

When choosing a topic for the final work, students should choose a topic covered by one of the classes offered in this study programme. Students should then look at the topics suggested by members of our department in IS (under Packages of Topics, under Student) and select a supervisor to contact and work out the details of their cooperation with.

No matter what the topic, the theses must be written in English.

The final version of the work needs to have minimum 54,000 characters, which translates to approximately 30 pages (not including figures and appendices). The deadline for submission (uploading the thesis into the archive in IS) is four weeks before the final exam. Two printed copies must follow soon after.

Evaluation of the thesis will be given based upon a rubric for evaluation. Students should refer to the General Guidelines for Writing Theses, as well as the Sectional Instructions for Theses for those writing on topics in each section.
