Thesis Project

The way in which your thesis project is arranged varies depending on the programme you are taking. It is common to write an independent essay for the final bachelor or master thesis project, but it can also take other forms, such as in the arts programmes. Writing a thesis often differs from the teaching and study situations that you have previously encountered. For example, it is common to have individual instruction or instruction in small groups and the demands of working independently are often higher, which means you need to plan and organize your work.
