​Frequently asked questions regarding theses/dissertations

Signature on declaration page: Please note that the signature is no longer required, and that the student can simply type his/her name below the declaration. The reason for this is that the whole process is recorded electronically, as proof that all parties adhere to the policy etc.

Crest: If there are students struggling with adding the crest, please submit without the crest, and we will make sure that the crest is added in the end.
