Here you can find information on the structure of a bachelor thesis and recommendations on how to conduct and record your research.
Please keep in mind that these guidelines are not binding. They are recommendations only and provide assistance in planning and conducting your bachelor thesis. In order to ensure a smooth process, we recommend to observe these guidelines.
The first step in working on a bachelor thesis is the selection of a topic. You can either develop your own topic or select an available topic from the COM group. Please note that the topic of your thesis must always be approved by your supervisor.
You are advised to choose a topic that is close to the research being carried out by the chair group, to ensure suitable supervision and guidance. As soon as you have made up your mind, contact the COM thesis coordinator Joanne Leerlooijer. After discussing the possible topic(s) and completed courses, she can direct you to a possible COM supervisor.

A bachelor’s thesis is a public written work that is counted towards a bachelor’s degree and explores a narrowly focused research problem. Bachelor’s theses are commissioned by companies and organizations that are seeking information on a specific topic or are looking for summer workers or students who might write them a master’s thesis later on. Commissioning a bachelor’s thesis from a student is free of charge.

The number of bachelor theses which can be supervised is limited. Therefore not all requests can be accepted. Students should propose a topic which we will then narrow down together. Requests for supervision should be accompanied by a current transcript.
The bachelor thesis’ aim is to autonomously elaborate the given topic on the basis of contemporary literature, which was discussed with the supervisor. A very good thesis should

In the Social Sciences department the five extra credits (140 hours) could be i.e. laboratory work for psychological experiments, or extensive empirical research, like extraordinary substantial field research or a partial or full internship, if and only if strongly related to the thesis. Note that the extension cannot merely comprise extra readings.
The department of the Humanities expects students to specify, in a short, written document, how the standard 10 ECTS of the regular thesis will be spent, and what they will do for the extra 5 ECTS that come with the extension. Options are a substantial empirical research project, requiring extensive practical work, or a significant enlargement of the literature corpus, or, finally, an internship clearly related to the thesis topic.
Generic skills or transferable skills have been discussed in terms of whether or not skills learned in one context can be transferred into another context. The current study was aimed to explore nurses’ self-perceptions of the knowledge and skills they had obtained while writing a Bachelor’s thesis in nursing education, their experience of the extent of transfer and utilization in their current work. Responding nurses (N = 42) had all worked from 1 to 1.5 years after their final examination and had completed a questionnaire that was structured with open-ended questions. Only five nurses reported that they were unable to use any of the knowledge and skills they had obtained from writing a thesis. A majority of the nurses (37/42) could give many examples of the practical application of the skills and knowledge they had obtained. Our findings indicate that writing a thesis as part of an undergraduate degree program plays a major role in the acquisition and development of knowledge and skills which can subsequently be transferred into and utilized in nursing practice.
