The master thesis is a report of the research you carried out during your internship
The formal guidelines for the master thesis are as follows:
- The length of the thesis is usually around 8000 words long (1.5 line spacing, font size 12 [Times New Roman; 11 pts for ARIAL], margins of about 2.5 cm all round), excluding title page, references, tables, figures and appendices.
- The thesis must be written in English. Either you write your thesis in British English or in American English, not a mix of the two.
- The thesis must be written individually.
- Use APA guidelines for referencing. No other referencing guidelines are allowed.
The final version needs to be mailed to the Education Office (fdp-masterthese maastrichtuniversity.nl) and both supervisors in the same email.
