The graduation project is the last part of your preparation for a professional career. This last part of the curriculum is worth 45 ECTS and normally takes 3 quartiles.

In a graduation project you conduct research within the field of one of the four tracks, and/or make a design. It is also possible to combine expertise or content from another core program, another department or another university. Part of your graduation project may take place abroad.

Before you start

There are some requirements you need to fulfill before you start with a graduation project:

  • Your personal study plan meets the requirements of your core program or register program, is handed in to the Education & Student Affairs Office and approved by the Examination Committee.
  • You have obtained at least 55 ECTS, and less than 20 ECTS remaining of your track's program.

Graduation process

The process of graduation is different for each specialization. For example: AUDE students can choose from an offer of graduation studios and BPS students discuss research proposals with a professor within their fields of interest.

The units AUDE and USRE have a graduation guide available with detailed information. You can download them in the Downloads section.

Study association KOers! has created a guide with helpful information for SD students.

You can discuss graduation possibilities with your mentor, or contact the coordinator of your track for more information about graduation:
