These assignments are only suitable for bachelor theses

On this website you will find the list of available bachelor thesis assignments offered by the specialization Health Psychology and Technology.

Pay attention:

With the assignments, the name of the lecturer is given for information. It is not the intention that you contact the lecturer and make appointments outside the procedure. Keep in mind that an interview can be part of the procedure for an external assignment. So also an external client can have a voice in assigning an assignment to the student. 


If you choose an assignment in Health Psychology and Technology (HPT):

Step 1: Make a top five of your options for assignments. Until January 16th additional bachelor thesis assingments may be added. From Thursday 16th of January to Tuesday 21st of January, 2020 you can fill in the form (link below) and specify five options. You can also upload your short motivation letter here if it has been requested for an assignment. 

Step 2: At the end of January 2020 you will receive an e-mail about the assignment you can start with. When assigning assignments we will take into account your five options as much as possible. However, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the assignment of your choice.

Step 3: Only after you have been informed by the coordinator about the assignment you can start with, you can contact the supervising lecturer of the assignment.
