Colloquium presentation procedure

  • Find a suitable date with your supervisor and juror. One Thesis Talk or colloquium can be scheduled each weekday at 15:15. Check the schedule on the MSc website for events and other presentations already scheduled. You can email to check if your preferred slot is available and reserve it.
  • Your supervisor is responsible for finding one staff member functioning as juror. The juror cannot be the supervisor of your main research project.
  • After your colloquium supervisor approves your essay, request your colloquium presentation via the form on Brightspace. The following information is asked on the form:
    1. your name, student number and study programme (Chem or LST)
    2. the title of your essay
    3. proof of attendance of  colloquia (combine scans, photos and/or screenshots into a single pdf file)
    4. the names of your mentor, the colloquium supervisor and the juror
    5. the preferred date and time of your colloquium
  • After the form is submitted, you can upload your essay (pdf format) via the hand-in point on Brightspace. Please note the requirements for the title page.
  • The form and essay should be submitted at least 5 working days before the requested date of the colloquium. 
  • You will be contacted on your uMail email address to confirm your presentation slot.
  • The colloquium will be announced on the MSc website. You are strongly encouraged to invite fellow students and group members from your supervisor’s research group yourself. 
  • Presentations are on campus, unless requested otherwise.

 It is not obligatory for your mentor to be present at the colloquium, but it is recommended and appreciated.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! For many students, the colloquium is the last part of their MSc studies. Please note that the graduation procedure requires considerable effort from the staff at the Science Student Administration and needs to be started at least six weeks before your examination date. Start the graduation procedure on time! Read more about the graduation procedure.
