Semester 4: Thesis (cohort 2021)

On these pages we will publish information relevant for the Thesis phase (the 4th Semester) of the Cartography MSc.

For students in the 2020 and earlier cohorts, go HERE for information on your steps...

To do in the coming time [complete timeline here]:
  • The MSc Cartography Steering Committee has approved all requested topics, and now also assigned the reviewers. See the overview HERE.
  • We created a "Procedural Handbook" about the thesis proces. In it you can find the defence procedures, and your tasks and responsibilities. Also, the roles of the supervisors and reviewers are explained.
  • You have received an email confirming your thesis topic and your main supervisor, which also determines the University at which you will write your thesis. With that information you and the partner university can make the necessary arrangements for the 4th Semester: enrolling, housing, and finances.
  • The thesis semester 4 of course has not started. So, your main task is finishing semester 3. But you can and should be in contact with your supervisor about preparing your Extended Research Proposal (ERP).
    What is an ERP, actually? See some explanation and examples of last year here...
  • [will follow once the semester starts]
