If you are interested in a thesis with us, please first check whether you fulfill the prerequisites.
As soon as you know you want to write a thesis with us, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and CC your study advisor. Your study advisor then checks if you indeed have met all requirements to start the thesis and will respond - CC-ing the email@example.com - with approval or disapproval. If the latter is the case, the student first has to make an appointment with the study advisor.
In parellel, you fill out this intake form intake form so that we are informed on your study background and the period in wish you wish to start. Contact us at least 2 months before the start of your thesis. The sooner, the better! After we have received your form, you will be invited to our intake session.
Come to our intake meeting
We organize BSc thesis intake sessions bi-weekly. This is the moment where you meet the ORL thesis coordinator, students can ask questions, and the thesis coordinator will illustrate the main steps of the BSc thesis procedure.
State your preferences
Students can check our available thesis topic in our ORL Thesis Brightspace. This is a self-enrolment page (you can find us via the discover tab). Once you have made up your mind, you can state your top 3 via submitting this form. Within 10 working days, you can expect an e-mail from our thesis coordinator with an answer. Also, you will be assigned to your supervisor. It can be the case that you want to work on a slightly different topic within our group which is not exactly appearing in 'available thesis topics'. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss those ideas.
Meet your supervisor
Students are in the lead for planning a first meeting with their supervisor. Please save one hour to get to know each other, discuss the thesis topic and set mutual expectations. We recommend to schedule a series of meetings on fixed timeslots (e.g. weekly). This will save some coordination, also regular meetings keep both sides informed on the process and progress. Agreements that are made between supervisor and student should be secured in the BSc thesis contract (or 'learning agreement). You can find this contract in the BSc thesis course guide of your program. Please send a signed copy of this learning agreement to your supervisor, study advisor, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org
