The final version of the Master’s thesis is to be submitted on registration for the Master’s examination at the latest.
The Master’s examination is a board examination marking the completion of the course after four semesters. It takes place before an exam board and is open to the public. The exam board comprises at least three people from the degree programme. The head of degree programme generally acts as the chair.
The examination comprises the following three components:
