Prior to thesis examination
Undergraduate students (S1) should have finished all the courses prior to submit their thesis for examination with a minimum of 142 SKS. Furthermore. Students must have completed (and passed) the computerized comprehensive exam (CCE). CCE is regularly conducted at the second fourth week each month at 8.30, 10.30 and 13.00. You have to make a registration for the CCE (please click here for registration) and check the department websites for the examination schedule.
Department of Accounting requires all theses for the degrees to be checked by Turnitin, a text matching tool that is being used as an aid in the prevention of unfair means, particularly plagiarism. Please note that theses examination will not be formally conducted until the originality report has been checked by the Department of Accounting (with the similarity index of < 20%) and thesis is cleared for examination.
Number of copies for submission
Before the final thesis is submitted for the examination, you should contact the administrators for further information on the process to be followed for submitting the final copy of your thesis. A signed copy of the Declarations form (PDF-28KB) should be submitted to the Department of Accounting to confirm that the copy submitted for originality check via turnitin is an exact copy of the copy submitted for examination.
Length of time taken to examine thesis
It is normally expected that the examination process will take approximately 2 weeks from submission. However, it should be stressed that this is very dependent on the supervisor and his/her availability and therefore students must make discussion with the supervisor to discuss the exact time.
The thesis examination is usually conducted in the first and third week in each month, while registration has to be made at least one week prior to the examination date. The examination committee at least consists of 3 examiners, including the student supervisor. Usually, the examination is conducted for one hour with a minimum of 15 minutes presentation. Each examiner will have 15 – 25 minutes for the questions and answers. Each examination room is equipped with a LCD, a whiteboard and a marker. No computer is provided and thus, students are responsible to bring along their own computer (notebook).
