  • Theses at the MCM

    I am expected to pick up the topic of my project/ seminar/bachelor or master thesis within the next weeks. What do I have to consider?

    As a result of the current health and hygiene requirements, the MCM building  and the Heribert Meffert Library will remain closed until further notice. Only MCM employees (including student assistants) will have access.

    We therefore follow the procedure of the last months:

    • The registration form (“Leitkarte”) with your topic and the name of your supervisor will be sent to you by the respective chair/institute (secretary's office or supervisor) as a PDF document via e-mail on the day of pick up.

    • You must sign the card and return it to the sender within 24 hours via e-mail (please send us a scan or a photo).

    • The original registration form can be submitted once the situation allows this again, i.e. when the MCM building is accessible for students again.

    I am currently writing a project/ seminar/ bachelor or master thesis. Is my supervision ensured, and how?

    Your supervision is ensured; it will mainly be provided by telephone, digital platforms or e-mail. Please discuss specific appointments with your supervisor via e-mail.
     

    For my thesis I need books from the Meffert Library, which - in contrast to the ULB - is still closed. What can I do?

    Please contact your supervisor directly or the library staff. In general, you can arrange a borrowing.

    Is there a possibility to extend my writing period as a result of the current situation?

    • As of today, all thesis with pick-up date from 01.02.2021 onwards will have regular submission deadlines. Please check the Examination Office for further information.

    I will hand in my project/ seminar/ bachelor or master thesis within the next weeks. What do I have to do?

    • Students must submit their work in printed format. The date stamp on the envelope is the valid date of submission.
    • Personal submission: Students can also use the WWU mailbox (address: Am Schlossplatz 2, 48143 Münster) in case the (small) MCM mailbox (address: Am Stadtgraben 13-15, 48143 Münster) is full. To make it easier for the university´s staff to distribute your thesis internally, please label it with the MCM address in both cases.
    • Postal submission: please use the MCM address (same as before).
    • A personal submission is not recommended.  
    • If you have any questions, please contact your supervisor.
  • Pick up of documents (certificates etc.)

    I need an important certificate/document. How can I get this?

    The MCM building remains closed and will be accessible only to university employees (including student assistants); the entrance door will be locked (see above). If you have a specific enquiry regarding your studies, please contact the person in charge or the secretary of the respective chair/institute by telephone or e-mail. In several situations, it is now sufficient for students to send required documents electronically only and submit paper versions at a later point. Please check with the Examination office whether this applies to your particular case.

    What happens to my course planning if events are rescheduled and I cannot attend them?
