Please download the document Laufzettel Seite 1 ZPA and email it - completed as far as possible - to our administrator Ms. Alisa Foit at the Central Examination Office. The Central Examinations Office will then certify on this page that you meet the requirements for the thesis.

At the same time, you will make an appointment with the supervisor of your thesis to discuss the topic of your thesis.

Please take the first page signed by the Central Examination Office and the document Laufzettel Seite 2 Institut with you to this meeting.

As soon as both pages of the Laufzettel have been completed and signed, the Central Examination Office will receive this document back in order to enter the data in your RWTHonline Curriculum Support.

The processing period begins on the day on which the supervisor records the assignment of the topic on the routing slip. The processing period is entered in your RWTHonline Curriculum Support.

The thesis must be submitted to the ZPA in due time in duplicate, typewritten, bound and paginated. The Central Examination Office confirms the submission of the thesis.

The thesis and the completed routing slip are then sent to the supervisor. He or she is responsible for forwarding the second copy to the second examiner.

After the grade has been entered on the routing slip, the supervisor forwards it to the Central Examination Office, where your grade is entered in your curriculum and your degree certificate is issued.

The thesis remains with the first examiner at least for the archiving period of 5 years.

*The supervisor at the Institute of Geography is also the first thesis examiner.
