Master's thesis

In the first semester of the master’s programme you take courses that will give you a foundation for further specialization towards your master’s thesis. After this, the study plans vary depending on whether you will be doing a long or a short master's thesis:

  • A long master's thesis is 60 ECTS credits. In addition you take master's courses corresponding to 60 ECTS credits. The work on the master's thesis is normally performed over the last three semesters, with a workload of 10 ECTS credits in the second semester, 20 ECTS credits in the third semester and 30 ECTS credits in the fourth semester.
  • A short master's thesis is 30 ECTS credits. In addition you take master's courses corresponding to 90 ECTS credits. All the work on the master's thesis is done in the fourth semester. The thesis topic is set in discussion with your supervisor during the third semester.
