When the supervisor believes the thesis is ready for preliminary approval and submission (see further http://www.imaes.eu/?page_id=1638), he/she assesses the student’s research and writing process by means of the MA-thesis assessment form and sends this to the coordinator of studies. A thesis committee is then appointed, consisting of three members (the supervisor cannot be one of them).
The supervisor will designate the time and place of the oral defence, in consultation with the thesis committee. The supervisor should then notify of the time and place of the oral defence to the coordinator of studies by means of the MA-thesis defence form:
The student will distribute the thesis to the examination committee (three printed copies for the committee members, plus an electronic copy for the coordinator of studies). The defence should be scheduled so as to allow a reasonable period of time for all members of the examination committee to read and review the thesis.
Date of the oral defence:
The oral defence will be open to the university community. It will necessarily take place in accordance with the dates and deadlines established for such purpose by each of the three universities involved in the Master’s programme, as follows:
20 February 2017 (only available to students already registered during the previous academic year)
27 and 28 June 2017
31 July 2017
February (only available to students already registered during the previous academic year): from 30 January to 23 February 2017, inclusive
