The Urkund user instructions for students and the guidelines for handling plagiarism cases at Laurea are provided on page Study progress > Plagiarism on LINK.
The first steps in thesis preparation are the selection and analysis of the topic. Read more about the process on the Thesis page on LINK. The thesis preparation includes acting as an opponent to another student’s thesis, presenting one’s own work, evaluation discussion and completing the maturity test.
Step-by-step instructions for Safety, Security and Risk Management students are available in Canvas workspace.
“The maturity test, which is part of the thesis, is taken by the student in Finnish or Swedish, in accordance with the Decree on Universities of Applied Sciences. Students who have received their formal education outside of Finland or in a language other than Finnish or Swedish take the maturity test in either Finnish or English.” (Laurea degree regulations.)
The thesis evaluation guidelines are provided on LINK (Study path > Evaluations and Retakes). The evaluation criteria are included in Laurea’s thesis guidelines.
All staff and students of Laurea are expected to adhere to good scientific practices, which includes appropriate referencing. Familiarise yourself with the practices and, if needed, ask for more information. All study assignments are to be done as individual work unless otherwise instructed. Urkund is used when assignments are checked.

The thesis is expected to demonstrate a clear connection to workplace development. For example, the goal may be to develop a service, action models or a new work culture. The thesis may be part of the research and development activities of the University of Applied Sciences.
Every semester will begin with a session to provide necessary information for the Thesis process.
All other contact sessions during the semester will be Thesis plan and final Thesis presentation seminars.
Otherwise completion of the Thesis will be scheduled by the student, in cooperation with the Thesis supervisor.
If you are graduating, please note the important dates concerning the submission of the thesis.
The actual implementation schedule is directly visible to students in Pakki as calendar reservations, so this information does not need to be repeated in this field.
One credit equals approximately 26.7 hours of work performed by the student.
