Advanced Master in Privacy, Cybersecurity and Data Management, Master Thesis Year II
During the second academic year, in the course of Master’s Thesis II component students choose their thesis topic, if necessary, with the help of staff members. The topics shall be closely related to the specific subject matter of the programme. In order to ensure that candidates are on track with their thesis and are able to finalize the programme in a timely manner, a number of stepping stone events are planned during the second year: Candidates will work together with a supervisor to draft and submit a thesis outline. During the second Period of the second year, candidates will present their outline. This will be the first instanceof the written exchange between the student and the supervisor. Students will work on the thesis to draft the first version that will need to be presented to the supervisor in June of the second academic year. After the exchange of feedback, students will submit the final version of the thesis by 31 August of the second academic year.
In the course of the supervision relationship, supervisors and students are at liberty to define the milestones of the process and contact moments, save for the obligation imposed on supervisors to provide written feedback twice in the process of writing (in reaction to the submitted outline and first draft of the thesis).
