MA Diploma Exam

Defense of diploma thesis

 

  • A month before defending the diploma thesis, the student (or supervisor) is obliged to send to the ISAD Office (by e-mail) information on the title of the diploma thesis and the name of the supervisor and reviewer. Please check the thesis title carefully before sending, as the student will be responsible for all typos and errors in the thesis title.

 

  • After entering the data into the USOS system by the ISAD Office, the student enters an abstract, key words, and then uploads a file with the thesis in PDF format to the AP. We will inform you about opening the system. Please enter the thesis till 15th June.
