Students' responsibilities in eGradu

The supervisor makes a final review of the manuscript and gives permission for it to be submitted for evaluation. A thesis is regarded as submitted for evaluationt and the supervision process ends when the student has submitted the thesis for plagiarism control.
Simultaneously, the student shall fill out the form for electronic publication of the thesis.

Before handing in your master's thesis
Students at FSE and FNT, and from 1 August 2020 all students, should pass language response, BEFORE handing in their master’s thesis for evaluation. Language response is obligatory. Language response replaces language checking (which used to be carried out after the thesis has been handed in).
See the Language Center for more information on language response.

NB! If you are a student at FHPT and FPV and will hand in your master’s thesis in the beginning of the autumn term 2020, and you have not had a chance to get language response, your thesis will go through language checking.(See more information on language checking)

The evaluation process starts
With the Dean’s permission, a student can start the evaluation process also without permission from the supervisor, and in that case the supervisor does not participate in the examination process.

The evaluation process is initiated with plagiarism checks, after which the thesis is automatically forwarded to the next phase.  

Students' responsibilities in the examination process are summarized in the following steps:

  1. Fill out the form for electronic publishing of the thesis
  2. Submit the thesis for plagiarism checks, language revision and thesis evaluation
  3. Apply for confidentiality if necessary 
  4. Apply for postponement of time of publication because of preparation for commercial publication, if necessary
