Hand-in deadlines 

For all thesis hand-in deadlines, please refer to the relevant thesis procedure above. For general hand-in and grading deadlines see the academic calendar.

You can find the UCU thesis deadline adjustment request in Osiris Case. An extension request must be submitted at least one week before the submission deadline. Please note that late or non-submission of your thesis may have grading consequences. 

Publishing your work

Utrecht University promotes open sharing of knowledge. Students may indicate when uploading their thesis in Osiris if they agree to making their thesis publicly available. If a student chooses to do so, the university library will take care of the publication. As a result, the thesis can be found in the Utrecht University Student Theses Repository and in search systems such as Google (Scholar) and WorldCat . Read more about how to do this.
