Third-year students of the Honours College FSW programme.
In consultation with your supervisor, you will extend your Bachelor’s thesis by 3 EC (= 84 hours) as part of your Honours FSW programme. The purpose of this extension is to provide you the opportunity to learn more from the Bachelor project. Together with your supervisor, you will decide how to extend your thesis. There are several possibilities, for example:
An additional literature study, and/or
An additional research question, and/or
Carrying out more sophisticated statistical analyses.
Of course you could also collect more data, but this can only be a (small) part of the extension.
For Psychology students: If you participate in the Honours Research Bachelor Project (HRBP), you do not need to extend your bachelor’s thesis, this is already included in the HRBP.
Please inform your supervisor at the start of the bachelor project that you need to extend your Bachelor’s thesis by 3 EC as part of your Honours FSW programme. (Supervisors will also be informed by the Honours College FSW.) Do this as soon as possible so that your supervisor is aware of this requirement and that there is sufficient time to talk about an interesting addition to your thesis. Also, please download the ‘Statement extension bachelor’s thesis’ from the Blackboard page of your cohort and email this to your supervisor.
