The topic registration and the defense of the Bachelor’s thesis

The registration of the Bachelor’s thesis in InSIS is done by the supervisor in cooperation with the student and at least three months before the planned defense. After the completion of the Bachelor’s thesis (in cooperation with the thesis supervisor) the student submits the thesis at first electronically into the database of qualification theses (only in .pdf format) in InSIS. The proper electronic submission has to be confirmed by the following notification: “Correct submission of the thesis confirmed – The electronic version of the thesis was submitted and the correct submission was confirmed. Hereby, the submission process is ended. The thesis cannot be modified anymore.”

The physical submission consists of one printed version (hardcover). It is necessary to submit the thesis together with a printed confirmation of a correct submission of the thesis into InSIS. The submission dates are listed above, in InSIS and Faculty webpages. Student submits the thesis by this date (at the latest) in the office RB 358. The thesis defense can be separated from the final examination. Student can sit the final examination without being obliged to defend his/her thesis. Immediatelly after the defense the printed thesis is returned back to the student.

How to start writing a thesis

Recommended structure of a thesis

The thesis is printed in A4 format. Recommended line spacing 1.15, using a proportional serif font of size 12 pt. Font paragraph and chapter names are proportionally larger. Pages are numbered consecutively except the front page. The tables and figures are numbered and labelled. In the text they are referenced (see Figure 3.3, as is evident from Table 7.1). Below the figure or the table, the source must not be missing (if the creator of a table or of a figure is the author, indicate “Source: author“). Tables and figures should always apply directly to the text. Otherwise (or if a table is too large, images etc.) they are placed in the annex. The total length of the thesis is usually 40-50 pages excluding annexes, to a maximum of 100-120 pages including annexes. Duplexing saves forests.

Principles of working with literature:

Annex

Large tables, various calculations, samples of surveys used, large explanations and other supporting material analyzed in the text should be placed as an appendix. Each appendix has to have a title and a number (e.g. Appendix 1, Appendix 2, etc.). Every appendix has to be pointed to from the text.

Further relating information to Bachelor´s Thesis, submission, defense and templates

The thesis is evaluated by the supervisor and by the opponent. The opponent must be university-educated expert in the field, and must not be a related party. Due to the prevention of plagiarism the thesis when submitted is checked by anti-plagiarism software Ephorus. This check is done by the supervisor.

Registration for the defense of your thesis should be done in “extra-semestral courses” section at Student’s portal in InSIS. For the defense prepare a ppt(x) or pdf presentation lasting up to 10-15 minutes where you emphasize the goals, research methods and your most important findings. In the course of the defense it is important to clarify your own contributions. Do not forget to prepare the answers to questions from both evaluations. Be ready to react for additional questions.

The general terms and other hints for the defenses are announced in InSIS.
