The Master thesis must be assessed by two examiners appointed by the local Examination Board or its equivalent on behalf of the two degree awarding universities involved.
In principle, the two examiners should be a member of both degree awarding universities. Supervision and assessment will be conducted in line with the ‘Master Thesis Guide’ compiled by the Consortium.
If the research protocol demands involvement of human participants (a.o. interviewing beneficiaries, observation of communities, use of data sets of third parties) or is funded by third parties, the thesis proposal needs to be approved for ethical clearance by the local Examination Board or equivalent ethical committee.
