Forms of Assessment
The master's programme is finalized by an oral master's degree examination after the thesis has been submitted and approved. This exam consists of a public presentation of about 30 minutes, where the student gives an overview of the thesis. Examiner, supervisor(s) and internal examiner(s) should normally be present at the public presentation.
A non-public oral examination/ conversation about the thesis should follow the presentation. The thesis should have a tentative grade based on an evaluation form filled in by the examiners before the presentation. The presentation, along with the oral examination/ conversation, may adjust the grading of the thesis. Only the final grade is made known to the student and is shown on their grade transcript.
The thesis must be submitted no later than 10. semester.
There will be an ordinary assessment each semester.
