Graduating

The master programmes takes two years and students finish it with a thesis. This thesis is worth of 40 to 44 ECTS, this differs per master programme. The last 9 months of the master programme, students will work on their thesis. Teachers can help the students find a subject or a company where the thesis can be about.

Before September 2008, every students was aloud to start working on a thesis if they have a maximum of 15 ECTS left of courses to finish. Now the board of examiners has changed the rule and since September 2008, students can only start working on their thesis if they have no more than 10 ECTS left of courses to finish. A few years ago, students were also not aloud to start working on their thesis if they still have to finish their bachelors, but after the bachelor-before-master rule, this should not be a problem. Students can not finish their thesis if they still have not finished every course.

You can find more information in the Rules and Guidelines of the board of examiners.
