- The first mandatory thesis information meeting is on Tuesday the 6th of February at 08.15 - 10.00 in C2. We will walk though course outline, deadlines, requirements etc. One of the goals is to help you find a thesis partner.
- A meeting for students who have not teamed up with a thesis partner is on Thursday the 1st of March at 15.15 - 17.00 in T1.
- Please fill in the enrolment form and send it to Olga by email no later than the 19th of March. This will be your starting point and your first message to your supervisor.
- The course starts on Tuesday the 3rd of April at 8.15-10.00, location schedule is on the way.
- A planning seminar together with your thesis supervisor will take place on Tuesday the 3rd of April at 10.15 until approx. 13.00 (the exact time may vary for each supervisor). Detailed nformation is provided at course start. A first draft of the Thesis Proposal (TP) must be prepared for this seminar.
- A mandatory TP-seminar (presentation and discussion of the full-length Thesis Proposal of 2000-2500 words) will be held within the first week of the course. Details will be announced by your supervisor at the planning seminar on the 3rd of April.
- The final seminars will take place week 23, further instructions and details are provided by your supervisor as the course progresses.
- Further information for registered students is provided on the course webpage on Lisam (student login required) at course start. The link to Lisam and the schedule can be found at student.liu.se. Other working seminars will be organized during the process according to the plan that each individual supervisor provides. Much of the planning depends on the contents and quality of Thesis Proposals.
A thesis course is different from other courses in many ways, and writing a thesis is not an easy task. The process entails a lot of responsibility, careful planning and full commitment. It is important to keep in mind that writing a thesis also means coordinating your individual efforts with other people: your thesis partner, your supervisor, and your fellow seminar colleagues. Ultimately, the final product is the thesis that will have your name on it.
A lot of work needs to be done before the course starts in April: finding a thesis partner, figuring out what your research interest is and preparing a TP. With a good TP, you have a good foundation to start working on the thesis right away.
Welcome to the thesis course of 2018!
