To be admitted to the graduation session students must earn all the credit points provided for in the programme structure (96 credit points). The thesis  is worth 24 credit points according to the programme structure of the MSc Programme.

The thesis is evaluated on contents, presentation and defense. The graduation is composed of an oral presentation and of the defense which includes answering questions and discussing issues raised by the members of the Examination Board. Then the Board determines the student's graduation grade. The evaluation is expressed out of 110. Students pass the final degree exam if they obtain a mark of at least 66. The Board can unanimously award "lode" (cum laude) as a special distinction. 

In order for your thesis to be accepted, it must also pass the Turnitin Anti-plagiarism Check.

The thesis preparation is divided into the following phases:

  • Assignment of the thesis
  • Admission to the graduation session and thesis submission;
  • Thesis oral presentation and awarding of the graduation grade.

ASSIGNMENT PROCEDURES


The thesis supervisor, who will supervise the progress of the work, formally assigns the thesis. Once the thesis has been assigned, the thesis supervisor will nominate, among the professors, a co-examiner to act as the interlocutor during the defense of the thesis.
