Bachelor- and Master Candidate Colloquium

In addition to the individual supervision of the bachelor / master candidate by a research assistant, a colloquium for the candidate students is offered twice a month. The colloquium's objective is the exchange of knowledge between the participating students, and should thereby encourage them to think “outside the box”.


Participating in the colloquium is compulsory for all bachelor / master candidates. Candidates who write their thesis externally are exempted from regular participation. However, all students must present intermediate findings after three months and final results after six months.

The colloquium takes place every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, from 2:30 to approx. 4:00 p.m.

The colloqium is held ONLINE. The student has to join the following ilias course: 

Intermediate Presentation

A 10 minute intermediate presentation, which describes the current status of the research and shows further steps, is required after three months for Master students. The intermediate presentation is not graded.

Final Presentation

A final thesis presentation is part of the exam requirement, taking place after the completion of the written thesis. The presentation is not graded, but is taken into consideration for the final grade. The presentation should last 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Further Information
