eGraduEng: Supervisor

The end of the supervision process - the beginning of the evaluation process

Before the supervision process ends

Check that the students have gone through the language response process and that they have checked that their theses fulfil the requirement for accessible web publications.

The supervision process ends

The supervisor makes a final review of the manuscript and gives permission for it to be submitted for assessment. A thesis is regarded as submitted for assessment 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.

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 process continues as follows - the role of the supervisor is of great importance:

  1. The supervisor informs the student about the initiation of the examination process (see TEMPLATE FOR E-MAIL1)
  2. The student submits his/her thesis for plagiarism checks and fills out the form for electronic publication of the thesis 
  3. The supervisor examines the results of the analysis report of the plagiarism check
  4. The supervisor informs the student of successful plagiarism checks and forwards the thesis to thesis evaluation (see TEMPLATE FOR E-MAIL2)
