Additional Information

The thesis is coordinated bij dr. Y. Engel (UvA).

The allocation of supervisors to students takes place once a year and is
coordinated by the thesis coordinator. Students need to apply for thesis
supervision before January 9th by completing an online survey. In this
survey students provide an (initial) research question and a short
description of their preferred thesis topic. The thesis coordinator will
use this information to match students with supervisors.

The deadline for handing in the final thesis is 1 July. This is also the
date that supervision stops.

The resit deadline is August 16th. Submissions between the July 1 and
August 16 deadlines are seen as a revision. As a result, students that
hand in their thesis after July 1 cannot graduate Cum Laude.

Policy in case of failing to meet the 2nd deadline:
• Students who miss the August 16 deadline are subject to a grade
cap of 6,5.
• Students miss the August 16 deadline need to re-enroll in the
program and pay tuition fees for at least one additional semester.
• The deadline for submitting the final thesis in semester 1 is
January 30.
• If the thesis is not a pass (< 6), the supervisor gives a final
round of feedback (by email), and the student needs to submit the
revised version by March 24.
• If the thesis handed in between January 30 and March 24 is not a
pass (< 6), students do not receive a final round of feedback to improve
their thesis.
• Late submissions in semester 2 need to comply with the deadlines
of regular students in the program that are mentioned above.
• Finally, students have the option to make a completely new start
with their thesis. This means they start over on April 1 (of the next
year) with the new cohort. Students that choose this option need to
contact the thesis coordinator by email before November 15. Be aware,
however, that all course credits will be lost if you do not finish the
thesis within 2 years of starting the program. In other words, this is a
very risky option.
