We were asked, on behalf of the programme, to remind you of the rules for starting a BSc thesis as stated in the ‘OER 2017-2018’ Article 31a. This article states that to start a BSc thesis, a student must have a total of at least 102 ECTS for the mandatory and restricted choice part of their programme. This must include all credits of the first year courses (all first year courses must have been successfully completed) as well as any chairgroup-specific required courses for prior knowledge. There will be no exceptions to this rule. This rule can be satisfied through the employment of your ‘Bachelor-5’. For more information on the exact rules regarding the BSc thesis, have a look at the following webpage or check out the Food Programmes Information Blackboard.
