As from the beginning of your thesis, there are several formal arrangements you need to carry out.
Register your thesis in Mobility Online
Mobility online is the UT system that is used to register thesis projects. As soon as you know what Master thesis project you are about to start, you are required to register your thesis project in Mobility Online. The registration process in Mobility Online consists of several steps which you all have to complete before you can actually graduate.
In the Mobility Online system there are different ‘pipelines’ for internal and external thesis projects. Therefore, you first have to choose between option A or B as described below. When you’re not sure which option you should choose please contact the Educational Affairs Office.
Option A: When you do your Master thesis project in a UT (internal) topic you need to register in the so-called “Graduation – standard pipeline”
Option B: When you do your Master thesis project externally in an organisation/company (with a third supervisor from this organization/company) or when you do your Master thesis project abroad (outside the Netherlands) you need to register in the extended so-called “Graduation pipeline”
After you’ve chosen option A or B please register your thesis in Mobility Online by following the corresponding procedure/instructions as described below:
Submit the thesis application form
One of the first steps in Mobility Online is to fill out the thesis application/proposal form (in other words graduation contract). You need to discuss the form with your supervisor(s). Once you have completed the form, please submit the (digitally) signed form to the Educational Affairs Office by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Make sure Mobility Online and the form have been filled out completely as described in the steps above.
- All supervisors
- Course code
- Title and assignment description
- Additional remarks (see procedure above)
- Dates in the schedule
- Signatures of all supervisors
Forms that are incomplete will not be approved!
When your project and supervisor have been determined and you do research with human subjects, you need to submit your research project for ethical review to the Ethics Committee. This is in principle for all intended research within the faculty of Behavioral Science involving humans in an indirect (i.e. file or social media research) or direct manner (i.e. experiments, surveys, interviews). Submit the ethical approval form always in accordance with your supervisor. You can only start the research data collection after you gained ethical approval.
