Preliminaries & general information
At the start of the Master's programme, the student is expected to contact the advisor of the specialisation of interest to select a thesis supervisor.
In the first half year the student is expected to follow courses to prepare for the thesis research. After that, the thesis project can be commenced. While the thesis work is being performed, the student still takes courses, usually the most advanced ones. Students are in particular encouraged to also have discussions about this material with the members of the department in which they are embedded.
