 Thesis semester

In the EnvEuro program, you will write your thesis (30 ECTS) in the 4th (and last) semester of the EnvEuro program.
When writing your thesis you follow the regulations at your host university (where you are writing your thesis).

Finding a supervisor and co-supervisor

The EnvEuro program is unusual in that not only is it conducted across two universities in two countries, you will also be required to find a supervisor and a co-supervisor from both your host university and home university. You will select your main supervisor from the host university academic staff and your co-supervisor from the home university academic staff.  Please remember that both the supervisor and the co-supervisor are required in order for you to graduate with the EnvEuro double-degree and it is advisable to start considering potential co-supervisors in your first year while you are studying at your home university. Finally, you will need to have officially selected both your supervisor and co-supervisor by the end of your 3rd semester
