erasmus thesis project

Are you a bachelor-3 student and writing your thesis at the department of Economics? Join the Erasmus Thesis Project (ETP) and get help with writing your thesis! In addition, you can win up to €250,- for your thesis.


What is ETP?


The goal of ETP is to provide additional guidance to bachelor students who are going to write their bachelor thesis at the department of Economics. In order to do achieve this we organised several workshops/events for you, so that you can get the most out of your thesis.

First, we started with an online opening lecture by dr. Benoit Crutzen on the 6th of May 2020. He gave a lecture on “How to write a better thesis”, where he provided tips, pointed out some common mistakes and discuss how to improve on them.

Second, we hosted an online STATA workshop on the 18th of May 2020 for students who are writing an empirical thesis and are using STATA. The PhD students Paul Bose and Mareen Bastiaans gave tips and tricks on how to use STATA. There was also a Q&A session where students could ask questions about STATA and their own thesis/dataset.

Third, we had a feedback session in June. Here students presented their thesis progress to one or two professors, who provided feedback and useful insights on how to proceed.

And finally, the last part of the project...

In September (date TBA) we will have a final where you can hand in your final thesis (more info on this will be announced soon). During the final the best three theses will get a reward of €250, €125 and €75 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

With all these activities we hope to have provided you all the support you need for writing your thesis and we hope that you’ll stay on track and finish your thesis on time. We can't wait to see the final presentations and announce a winner!
