Master Thesis

Master Thesis

Writing Master's Thesis:

First of all, you should find a topic and supervisors for your Master’s Thesis.

The first supervisor is always a member of the academic staff of Hochschule Geisenheim University.

He/she can help you to choose your second supervisor.

If your second supervisor is not either a staff member of another EMaVE consortium partner, please check here, or of an associated partner then please, check here. You will need a THIRD supervisor who fulfils these requirements.

To apply for your Master’s Thesis, your first year must be successfully completed and you have to submit a certificate of completion of an8-week-internship.

If your second supervisor cannot sign the form, please ask him to confirm his supervision by email.

The official period to write the Master’s thesis is 24 weeks.

The time starts when you get the admission signed by Prof. Dr. Kauer, Head of Examination Board.                                                                                                 

Submitting Master's Thesis:

Very important: Please note that the submission date of your Master’s Thesis is the exact date up to which you have to submit your Master’s Thesis together with all the required documents. Submitting the thesis later than on the submission date means a FAILURE.

In case of illness, you have to provide a medical certificate BEFORE the submission date.

In case of extraordinary circumstances justifying you not being able to submit your thesis in due time, please file an official application to Prof. Dr. Kauer, Head of Examination Board, explaining your reasons and asking for an extension of the submission date.

Your supervisors have to confirm by email that they agree with the extension.

To submit your Master’s thesis, please bring all the required documents with you.

The “Personal information” sheet is required so that we can issue and send you the official documents after your graduation.

You can submit your thesis personally or by post. Should you decide to send the documents by post, please note that it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure that the parcel arrives in the Examination Office during the normal office hours (by 4pm) on the submission.

  • All the 2nd year exams at Hochschule Geisenheim University
  • The written part of the Master’s thesis.

Application for Admission to the Master's Thesis defence:

  • Suggest a period of time for your defence.
  • Please note that the defence usually takes place 3-4 weeks after the submission of the Master’s Thesis.
  • Your supervisors have to read the final version of your thesis, decide if you passed the written part of the thesis, agree on the grade and find a date and time for your defence which will suit all members of the examination committee.
