MA Thesis Writing and Deadlines 2022

First-year students are supposed to submit MA thesis projects as part of assignments of the methodological class at Leiden University and Jagiellonian University that will then be forwarded to Charles University by local coordinators and registered in the CU system. Students will follow the instructions of tutors of the methodological classes at Leiden University and Jagiellonian University.

MA thesis submission deadline is June 17, 2022, at all EPS partner universities. MA theses are assessed according to joint criteria to consult in the MA thesis handbook where formal requirements can also be found.

In case a student requires an extension, she/he has to contact the local coordinator by June 10 with an explanation of why the extension is requested. Extension for MA thesis submission is set on an individual basis based on the conversation with Charles University and the partner university in question. If a student submits a thesis by June 17 (the original deadline), the EPS Consortium guarantees that the defence will take place by September. If the extension is set, there might be a need for study extension and thus for being charged.

Dates of defence of partner universities are the following:

  • Defence in Barcelona: early June
  • Defence in Krakow: June
  • Defence in Leiden: TBC
  • Defence in Prague: mid-September
