Deadlines at IFI
The department has two set deadlines for the delivery of 60 credit theses. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline will be extended to the following working day.
For students following the normal study progression, the deadline is May 15th.
For students beginning their studies in the fall semester of 2019 or later, the deadlines are:
|May 15th||June 5th - 20th.|
|November 15th||December 1st through 15th|
For students who began their studies in the fall of 2018 or earlier, the old deadlines apply:
|Long thesis||February 1st||March 5th - 20th|
|May 15th||June 5th - 20th|
|September 5th - 20th|
|November 15th||December 1st - 15th|
If your thesis is not delivered within the deadline, and you have not applied for an extension, this will be considered a fail.
A short thesis is written in the last semester of your master's degree program. You will be working on your thesis for a period of 17 weeks.
- In the spring semester, topics are usually given (and the work begins) on the first working day (Monday) of week 3, with a deadline on the first working day (Monday) of week 21. The final exam and presentation will take place in week 24 or 25. If May 1st or May 17th should fall on a working day, the deadline will be extended accordingly.
- In the fall semester, topics are usually given (and the work begins) on the first working day (Monday) of week 34, with a deadline on the first working day (Monday) of week 51. Final exams, including presentation, will take place in week 3 or 4.
If you need to deliver your thesis at a different time than those mentioned above, you and your supervisor can apply for an extension. The deadline will be adjusted accordingly.
You may not apply for a deadline extension if you are writing a short thesis.
