Submit the master’s thesis #

The master's thesis is to be submitted in NTNU's examination system (Inspera Assessment). See guide on how to submit on the page "Digital home exam - for students".

The master's thesis will be archived and published automatically, if applicable; read more about this on the page "Publishing and delayed publication of theses".

Extended deadline #

If you are working on your master’s thesis abroad, or you are working as a Research Assistant or a Teaching Assistant, you may be granted an extended deadline. You can apply for an extension by sending an email to your institute.

If you can’t submit due to technical difficulties with the thesis or the equipment, due to illness or other unexpected circumstances, your main supervisor can extend your deadline with one week. You need to apply for an extension and have the extension granted, before the submission deadline. If you fail to do this, your master’s thesis may be assessed as Not Approved.

See information and deadlines for starting up your master's thesis.

Students at the Faculty of Engineering (IV) must apply to the faculty for an extended deadline.
