  • In case of interest in a "non-traditional" topic, we recommend to check the available literature sources in advance.

Scope of the ToR:

  • Minimum length of the thesis is 20 pages of plain text (excluding introductory pages - title page, assignment page, table of contents, also excluding reference list and appendices, figures, etc.).
