Uploading the Thesis

In the 24 April 2018 session, the inter-faculty degree programme commission established the deadlines relative to the uploading of the thesis by the student and the approval of the thesis from the mentor, effective from the June 2018 graduation session:

  • the thesis must be uploaded by the student by the 15th of the month of the graduation session;
  • the final thesis must be approved by the mentor by the 17th of the month of the graduation session.

Failure to upload the thesis and/or receive approval from the advisor doesn't allow the student to be admitted to the graduation session, even if present on the published lists.

For this reason, we recommend seriousness and punctuality in respecting these requirements.

Please note that in addition to what is required by the provisions referred to in the link:, the student can upload any document deemed useful in the evaluation by the competent Graduation Committee. Each file should be named in a clear manner in order to facilitate its review.

Please note that international experience recognised by the Faculty or by the degree programme in question can be evaluated only if the graduating student uploads documentation in the "Infostud Lauree 2.0" system that clearly indicates the duration and completion of the international experience (Erasmus +, Erasmus + Traineeship, Free-mover, degree thesis abroad). This means that the student must have received prior authorisation as well as official documentation that certifies the completion of the international experience in question.

Instructions for uploading the thesis are on page 7 of the document available at the following link: Instructions for online degree application
