Master Theses

We recommend that you inform yourself about the registration of Master's theses at an early stage. Depending on the research group in which the thesis is to be supervised, the deadlines may vary.

The application for admission should be completed about 14 days before the desired start date, signed by the first examiner and submitted to the examination office. The topic of the thesis is issued by the first examiner. 

The thesis must be submitted in due time in two paper copies and additionally in digital form by 12 am in person to the office of the examination board, Universitätsstraße 25. If the submission date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the work must be received on the next working day. The digital version (e.g. as a PDF) can also be sent directly to the supervisors by email. In this case, please cc  the examination office. The date of the postmark applies when sending by postal mail. As soon as the reports are available, the grade will be noted in Marvin. The supervisor's reports can be viewed in the Examination Office.

If the thesis is your final examination, the certificate and transcript will be issued automatically after receipt of the evaluations. This can take up to 4 weeks. We will inform you by email as soon as your certificate is ready for collection. If you would like to receive your certificate by post, please leave a sufficiently stamped A4 envelope with us in the examination office. 

You must be enrolled to take examinations, i.e. in this case at the time of submitting your thesis, but not for the time of the examination of the thesis. Information on exmatriculation can be found here.
