Urban Studies (Research Master's)

The thesis is not just a long paper. It is an academic project, but for most students it turns out to be a personal project as well. Next to academic skills it will take self-discipline and good planning to complete your thesis in a satisfactory way. Please find below all relevant information for writing your thesis and organising your graduation.
