Lisätietoja opiskelijoille

One of the main ideas of this study unit is to help students to start planning their own thesis. It would be good if the student has a topic for the thesis beforehand the study unit begins. This would speed up the actual thesis process. You may begin the study unit even though you do not have the topic yet in mind and you do not have to start the actual thesis during this study unit.
