Course description

Workshop description

The thesis is the final subject of the BSc and MSc programme; and in most cases the most important individual project of a student. Due to the importance and size of the project, the meetings between supervisor and student are more intense and personal compared to those contacts in courses. The relationship between supervisor and student is therefore very important. Students expect certain behavior of their supervisor, but the supervisor also has expectations of his/her student. Questions about responsibilities for supervisor and student arise.

In this one-day course we introduce models about effective supervising thesis students, you exchange experiences, practice several communication skills, play out challenging situations and dig deeper on the topics that are addressed in the workshop Start to Supervise BSc & MSc thesis students.
