Before completing your bachelor’s thesis, you need to have received the green light by both your supervisors. You will submit the entire thesis to the supervisory committee twice. You will receive feedback on the first complete version, which you can use to alter your thesis. The second final version is called your green light version, which is being officially evaluated by your supervisors, with respect to (at least) sufficient or insufficient for presentation. The daily supervisor can give some final feedback onyour green light version but the amount of feedback and advice must be reasonable in order to receive a green light.
The green light version that you submit to your supervisor, must also be uploaded to the bachelor’s thesis Canvas page for a plagiarism check. One approved copy of the thesis is archived along with the assessment form by the programme.
Once your thesis report is finalized and approved, the final step in completing the bachelor’s thesis is to present your assignment to your supervisors. Your second supervisor can be present as well; however, the second supervisor does not assess your presentation. The presentation of your bachelor’s thesis is part of your final assessment. But do know that the presentation of your bachelor’s thesis is not an official ceremonial moment and thus afterwards will not receive your diploma.
Your presentation needs to last around 15 minutes, after yourpresentation, your supervisors and/or other visitors have the opportunity to ask questions (5 minutes).
Other interested parties of your programme can alsoattend the presentation, for example a teacher, but also for example, firstyear students who want to get an impression of the different research topics inthe bachelor’s thesis. To prepare yourself in the best way possible you can visit a presentation from your fellow students as well. Furthermore, you are allowed to invite family and friends, with a maximum of 10 persons. Do know that the presentation of your bachelor’s thesis is not an official ceremonial moment and thus afterwards will not receive your diploma.
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation the presentations of the bachelor's thesis in January 2021 will take place online. Students will be informed about the details via the Canvas page of the bachelor's thesis in advance.
