 Instruction-submitting Master's Thesis online

    The preparation process for defence - procedures:

  1. Submission of the diploma thesis is done by uploading the final version to the   APD system by student and sending it by the supervisor for verification by the anti-plagiarism system.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: the author/s statement should be uploaded in a separate file

  2. After receiving the anti-plagiarism report, the supervisor fills in the thesis evaluation form in the APD system. Subsequently the supervisor sends an e-mail with the reviewer’s proposal to the address (in the title of the email please write „ reviewer's proposal XXXXX”, where XXXXX is the student’s number).

  3. The Dean's Office prints thesis evaluation forms based on daily reports and attaches them to the student's files.

  4. The date of submission of the thesis is considered the date of approval of the thesis evaluation form by the supervisor.

  5. Not later than 7 days after uploading the thesis to the APD system, the student sends from his/her SGH email address to his/her Student’s Assistant pending email (with the title: „documents related to the thesis XXXXX”, where XXXXX is the student’s number) to which he/she encloses the documents required for submitting the thesis. They are available on the Graduate Studies Office website (statement to the diploma supplement, statement about additional student activity, confirmation of the diploma fee).

  6. In the case of a correctly uploaded thesis (title page, summary, and author’s statement) the Dean’s Office sends a request (via an email in the SGH address) to the appointed reviewer’s to prepare a review. The reviewer fills in the thesis review form in APD system.

  7. In the case of incorrectly uploaded thesis (or any other mistakes), the thesis will be withdrawn from the APD system. The student will be notified about that fact by his/her Student’s Assistant.

  8. The Dean's Office prints the number in APD, under which the thesis is saved, and places this number in the student's file.

  9. The Dean's Office prints the thesis review forms based on daily reports and attaches them to the student’s files.

  10. After completing the documents and verifying the graduation, the Dean's Office sets the date of defense after prior consultation with the supervisor

  11. Information about the date of defense will be sent to the supervisor, reviewer and student at least seven days in advance via an email in the SGH address.

  12. The other rules of the diploma process remain unchanged.
