Thesis writing in times of corona | Archaeology

27 March 2020

The coronavirus situation does not only affect our regular education activities. It can also have an impact on the process of thesis writing. We realise that it might be harder to get access to books or that your work schedule has been disrupted. 

For this reason, the Board of Examiners has postponed the submission deadline of theses:

  • Official new deadline for handing in the draft version: May 14th, 2020 
  • Official new deadline for the final version: July 1st , 2020  

Additionally, in case you feel that you are unable to meet this new, regular deadline as well, please discuss this with your thesis supervisor or study advisor. Please note that any further extensions need approval by the Board of Examiners.

Currently, the education office is making an inventory of the students who will be handing in their thesis this summer and autumn. We would like to ask you to send an email stating your name, your level (BA, MA or RMA) and thesis supervisor to the Education Office.

The thesis should be handed in in PDF format via Turnitin (using WeTransfer) and via email to the Education Office. See for more information the website on thesis writing.

We hope this will give you the chance to write your thesis to the best of your abilities.

We also hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy!
