Bachelor’s and master’s theses

Bachelor’s and master’s theses must be submitted in WISEflow.

Front page 

For bachelor’s and master’s theses, you must complete a separate front page that will be the first page of the thesis. As a general rule, you must enter your name on the front page, but some study programmes have an anonymity requirement. If this applies to your programme, your supervisor will inform you. See information about candidate number here.  

Thesis title on your diploma 

To ensure that the title of your bachelor’s or master’s thesis is included on your diploma, you must enter this in Studentweb yourself. 

It is a good idea to give your thesis a good title, so that your diploma can provide useful and meaningful information to future employers about which topic you have specialised in.  

Language

Bachelor’s and master’s theses must be written in the language that is most relevant to the content of the thesis and the practical circumstances of the particular student. Theses that are written in Norwegian must have a summary in English or another relevant foreign language. Theses that are written in a non-Scandinavian language must have a brief summary in Norwegian or a Scandinavian language. There may be exceptions to this in degrees given only in English.
