Guidelines for the Master's Thesis at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences #
Students who will submit their thesis must follow our guidelines for the master's thesis:
- Guidelines for the Master's Thesis at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (English version)
- Retningslinjer for masteroppgave ved Fakultet for medisin og helsevitenskap (Norwegian version)
Master's Thesis Agreement #
When you have found a topic and a supervisor for your master's thesis, you must submit a digital master's thesis agreement. This includes a short project description. Some master's programmes also require that you submit a budget for your project. Your student advisor will tell you about the requirements for your programme.
Read the Instruction for filling out the master's thesis agreement before you submit the digital form.
Registration for Exam #
The master's thesis is like an ordinary course, and you must register for exam in the semester in which you will submit the thesis. The deadlines are 15 September in the autumn semester and 1 February in the spring semester.
Submitting your Thesis #
In addition to the thesis, you must fill in, sign and submit the following forms:
- Registration for Final Master's Degree Examination
- Agreement on Lending, Usage and Electronic Publication of Thesis
Deferred Deadline #
In the event of sickness, childbirth or conscription, you must apply for a leave of absence. The deadline for submission of the thesis will then be extended corresponding to the period of the leave of absence granted.
For other compelling reasons, such as problems with data collection or illness of a shorter duration, you may apply at the department for a deferred deadline for submission of the thesis of up to three months. If you are not finished by the new deadline, it is possible to apply for an additional three months of deferment. It is not possible to apply for deferments more than twice.
Oral Examination #
An oral examination will be held as soon as possible, and no later than three months after you have submitted the thesis. The oral examination is normally public. You will be notified about the time and place of the exam.
Assessment of the Thesis #
The master’s thesis will be assessed by two examiners, of which at least one should be external. External examiner should not have had any employment at NTNU in the past year.
The examiners give a preliminary grade to the master's thesis prior to the oral exam. The oral exam can be used to adjust the grade of the written work by one grade up or down. The final grade is released immediately after the oral exam is held. You will only be made aware of the final grade.
You should submit your master's thesis only as a digital document. If you want to print your thesis for private use, your must pay for this yourself. Printing can be done at NTNU Grafisk senter.
