In accordance with the Attendance and Examination Regulations, Article 28 Qualification theses, university qualification theses must be submitted at least one month prior to the date of their defence. The date for the submission of the qualification theses is defined by the Dean of the Faculty as part of the Faculty’s schedule.
The assignment takes effect upon entry in the information system no later than three months prior to the date of submission of the thesis. Changes of the thesis supervisor and/or of the topic of the thesis are subject to the Dean’s approval under the conditions defined by the Faculty.
Bachelor/diploma theses (hereinafter referred to collectively as “qualification theses”) are a means for the students to demonstrate that they are capable of individually solving an assignment, doing the required secondary literature research, and/or reflecting on their own creativity in a theory text.
If the supervisor does not recommend a thesis for defence, the student may not be admitted to defend their qualification thesis. A student who is not admitted to defend a qualification thesis or who fails to defend their thesis will be classified as “F” by the examination panel for thesis defence. If the defence of a qualification thesis on a regular date is rated “F”, the examination panel may rule that retaking the defence is subject to writing a new qualification thesis.
Graduation performance is a part of a university qualification thesis whereby the student demonstrates the level of their artistic/expert work by creating their own work of art, performance or expert project (the “graduation performance”).
If at least one opponent does not recommend a graduation performance for defence, the student may not be admitted to defend their graduation performance. A student who is not admitted to defend their graduation performance or who fails to defend their graduation performance will be classified as “F” by the examination panel for thesis defence. Graduation performance as a part of the state final exam cannot be retaken.
You can find instructions for writing theses and for their uniform format as required by AMU in Rector’s Decree No. 4/2006.
