Erasmus Thesis Project 2020

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 will organize several workshops/events for you, so that you can get the most out of your thesis.

First, we will start with an online opening lecture by dr. Benoit Crutzen on the 6th of May 2020. He will give a lecture on “How to write a better thesis”, where he will provide you with tips and will point out common mistakes and discuss how to improve on them.

Second, we will host 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 will give tips and tricks on how to use STATA. There will also be a Q&A session where students can ask questions about STATA and their own thesis/dataset.

Third, we will have a feedback session in June (date TBA). Here students can present their thesis progress to one or two professors, who will provide you with feedback and useful insights on how to proceed.

Finally, you can win up to €250,- for your thesis. 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 provide 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.
