Kickstarting the Master Thesis: Best Practices
Several Master studies prepare the students for a Master Thesis by a special preparation course, e.g. Preparation Master Thesis (7.5 EC), Research Topics (5-10 EC), or Research Skills and Thesis Proposals (5 EC). In such a preparation course the student may obtain special skills, gets acquainted with the relevant literature, and usually finishes by delivering a research proposal. This may lead to a good start and timely delivery of the Thesis, to a reduced dropout rate, and to a higher Thesis quality. In this workshop we will discuss the ins and outs of such preparation courses based on discussions, brainstorms, and presentations by teachers and students.
