Students may register for the master’s thesis earliest after having fulfilled the formal requirements for admission and latest within two semesters after the end of the regular period of studies (Regelstudienzeit). Students enrolled under the examination regulations of WS2010/11 must register within six weeks past the successful completion of all modules, i.e. past the announcement of the last examination result.
To register, students use the form registration for master’s thesis [PDF]. This form can be obtained in hard copy from the academic office (Studienbüro). The registration form is to be submitted to the examinations officer of the economics team.
The examinations officer will check whether the formal requirements for registration for the master's thesis have been fulfilled and, by the end of the registration process, will inform students about the confirmed topic, writing period and deadline for submission of the thesis.
Note: After filing, students may change their topic only once, and only within the first two weeks of the writing period. Exceptions may be granted in extraordinary cases, upon request. If necessary, the board of examiners may decide on the proposal. If the proposal has been decided positively, the newly agreed topic must be registered immediately; latest within four weeks after the original withdrawal.
