Master's Theses

There are two possibilities for writing the Master's thesis. On the one hand, a Master's thesis can be agreed individually with a supervisor at any time and independently of a seminar; on the other hand, Master's theses can be written within the framework of a seminar.

Only students who are already enrolled in the Master's degree programme may make an individual agreement with a supervisor (cf. § 41 para. 1 StudO RWF) regarding the Master's thesis or register for a seminar in the context of which they write the Master's thesis (§ 39 RVO RWF).

The offer can be found in the seminar offer list. The registration deadlines can be found here.

Provided that the relevant requirements are met, performances in Moot Courts and Model United Nations that comprise at least 12 ECTS credits will also be counted as a Master's thesis. Further information can be found in the course catalogue, the list of seminars and the websites of the chairs. Registration does not take place via the registration tool.

For each Master's thesis, the Master's Thesis Agreement must be completed in full.

Master's theses not submitted within the (possibly extended) deadline are considered failed and are graded with 1. They appear on the transcript of records and count as a failed attempt.

Subsequent cancellation requests and requests for an extension of the deadline can be submitted to the exams management - if compelling, unforeseeable and unavoidable reasons are asserted (§ 25 Para. 2 RVO RWF).

Further information can be found in the Fact Sheet on Assessments (PDF, 231 KB).

Case Study

The case study in public law at Master's degree is to be booked via the module booking tool.

Registration Tool

The registration tool offers the possibility to set priorities in the created wish list. You will find instructions on how to do this in the registration tool itself. A wish list must exist in order for a place to be allocated.

An algorithm then distributes the places primarily according to the priorities set and secondarily at random. We recommend that you set several priorities. This does not reduce the chances of getting the first priority. I.e. in the reverse case, too, if only one priority is indicated, this does not increase the chance of receiving the allocation of the first priority.

The timing of an application within an application periodalso has no influence on an allocation. It is not the first-come-first-served principle.

The timeline in the application tool is as follows:

    1. registration deadline
    2. viewing of the allocated place
    3. cancellation deadline

If an allocated place is cancelled, there is no possibility of obtaining another place. It is not possible to move up. Please note the respective deadlines.
