Registration of final thesis

When do I register my final thesis?

You can register your final thesis at the central examination office as soon as you have discussed your topic with your supervisor in such detail that you can finish your thesis within six months. The registration of the final thesis is usually done before/at the beginning of your final semester.

Requirements for the admission to the final thesis

Students can only be admitted to the master's thesis

  • if they have successfully completed the master's project and the corresponding seminar,
  • if they have a confirmation of the mentor meeting (the mentor meeting must be registered in StudIS)
  • if they have been enrolled at the University of Konstanz for at least one semester.


Which forms and signatures do I need?

Please fill in the forms carefully. The topic of your final thesis as stated in this form will be the title given on your final degree certificate.
