Home - Studies - Student Gateway - Defences - Spring 2017

Thesis must be submitted no later than 15 May 2017 by 3 p.m to room S-409.

The defences will take place from 29 May to 11 June 2017 (timetable).

Registration for the graduation exam (if the curriculum ends with the exam) will take place in S-409 until 8 May 2017.

The Thesis must be submitted in one bound copy and in one electronic copy. The electronic copy of the thesis must be sent to the advisor of your curriculum in PDF format. The name of the electronic file must have the author’s name. With the thesis must be submitted a licence which permits the publishing of the electronic thesis in the Tallinn University Academic Library repository ETERA. Please do not bind the licence to your thesis, submit it on separate sheets with the paper copies of your thesis.

With the electronic copy must be sent an information form (Please pay meticulous attention to your thesis title in Estonian and in English as these will be entered into the database and will appear as part of your graduation documents).

The thesis title page (use paper copies) must have your supervisor’s signature which confirms that your thesis is ready to be submitted.

The Tallinn University School of Humanities demands the confirmation of authorship: on the reverse of the title page the author of the thesis must sign a confirmation that all the sources have been appropriately referenced and quoted. The text that must be used:

“I hereby confirm that I am the sole author of the thesis submitted. All the works and conceptual viewpoints by other authors that I have used, as well as data deriving from sources have been appropriately attributed.”


The Thesis can be defended only when the rest of the curriculum has been fulfilled and all graduation requirements met. All results must be in the database at the latest three days before defence. All the results still pending at the time of submission must be listed on the information form submitted with the thesis.

The external examiner report will be sent to student’s tlu.ee email at the latest one working day before the defence.

The slide show used during the defence must be uploaded at the latest one working day before the defence to the link sent to the student. The name of the file must be the student’s name. During the defence we will provide a computer so that the slide show can be accessed.
