Deferred submission of Master thesis

If you are unable to submit your Master thesis within the deadline 15 May, you can apply for an extension.

The following can be a basis for an extended submission deadline:

  • Illness of the student: In the case of documented illness, the submission deadline can be extended corresponding to the illness period.
  • Illness of the supervisor
  • Breach of contract from supervisor
  • Documented delay due to error/delayed shipment of material, failure of equipment or lack of informants/data basis.
  • Personal conflict between student/supervisor
  • Other special reasons may also provide a basis for a delayed submission deadline.

The application must contain:

  • How long you apply for deferment and when you want to submit.
  • The reason for the postponement
  • Whether the supervisor(s) have been informed and have approved the postponement.

Please use this application form.

Applications will be processed by the Programme Committee. Deadline for applying is as soon as the need is known, and no later than one month before the submission deadline for the Master thesis (15 May).
