Enrolment

Preliminary information

  • Individual work towards a final thesis should represent a study load of 25 hours per ECTS credit.
  • Students should plan their work process carefully to ensure that deadlines are met.
  • When a student enrols for the final thesis in a particular semester, they must deposit and defend their thesis in one of the periods established for that semester (the ordinary session or the extension session). Otherwise, the student will be assigned a mark of "Absent" for the final thesis and will have to complete a new thesis registration and a new ordinary enrolment. In such cases, students will have to pay a surcharge for retaking the thesis. 
  • If the subject of the thesis changes, extended enrolment may not be requested.

Requirements

Academic requirements: 
  • Maximum number of ECTS credits yet to be successfully completed: 36 (including final thesis credits).
    • Exception 1: If a student's academic record indicates that they are enrolled for ECTS credits for which they have not yet been assessed, whether for external academic placements, periods of mobility, or in relation to credit recognition.
    • Exception 2: If a student's academic record indicates that they have a maximum of 42 ECTS credits yet to be successfully completed and the student has applied to increase the number of credits for which they will enrol (to 42).
  • Linked final theses: The students involved must enrol for the final thesis in the same semester of the same academic year and defend their theses in the same examination session.
Teaching requirements: The student's final thesis registration must have been approved by the thesis supervisor (final thesis status = "Registered and accepted").
