Thesis submission

From 1 September 2019, students can submit the definitive version of their thesis or BA final project in Canvas. For students whose thesis was graded before 1 September 2019, the old procedure applies.

  • Procedure for uploading your thesis

    In order to submit your thesis, you must be registered for the thesis course in Canvas. On this Canvas page you will find all information concerning the submission of the definitive version of your thesis.

    • Before you submit your thesis (in PDF format), you must fill in the definitive title of your thesis in Canvas.
    • Master's students need to indicate whether the library (UvA Scripties Online) is permitted to publish the thesis.
      Bachelor's theses of the Faculty of Humanities will not be published.
    • As soon as the thesis has been uploaded, it will be checked for plagiarism and subsequently assessed.

    Please note: if you have not yet been registered for the thesis course in Canvas, please contact the Education Desk.

  • Thesis graded before 1 September 2019?

    For students whose thesis was graded before 1 September 2019, the procedure below applies. After your thesis is graded, you can apply for your degree certificate. You will need to complete the form ‘Thesis submission’ and upload a digital copy of your thesis. The thesis is subsequently archived in the library’s digital database, UvA Scripties Online

    How do you submit a digital copy?

    • Complete the form ‘Thesis submission’. If you agree to publication, you can provide key words in the form which make it easier to locate your thesis online, as well as a short summary of about 500 words. Please note: publication is only applicable to Master’s theses; Bachelor’s theses are only archived.
    • If you agreed to publication, your Master’s thesis can be publically accessed via UvA Scripties Online. If you do not wish your thesis to be published, e.g. because of confidentiality or publishing agreements, then make sure to mention so at the bottom of the form.

    Personal details

    The personal details provided in the form ‘Thesis submission’ are not saved in the database of UvA Scripties Online.
    Make sure to remove your personal details (like address and phone number) from the digital copy of your thesis before uploading it.
