If you are interested in writing your Bachelor or Master thesis in TEFL, please contact any of the TEFL staff to discuss your ideas for a possible topic. Please check our research interests and areas to find the person best suited to supervise your thesis. Please also contact us early if you have decided to write a thesis in TEFL.
Every semester we offer a colloquium which is designed to help you define a research question, to inform you about the formal requirements and assist you with your research. In addition, there will be several sessions in which you will be asked to present your research project (topic, research question, structure) and get the chance to discuss it and receive feedback from other students. Everybody writing his/her final thesis in TEFL will be expected to register for the course and participate actively. The sessions usually start within the first few weeks of each semester. So please make sure you have a supervisor for your thesis by 15th April/ 15th October.
We would like to encourage M.A. students to write a thesis with an empirical focus. It is recommended, in this case, that you attend one of our seminars introducing you to empirical research methods. These M.A. seminars are designed to assist you in writing a research proposal.
Please note that the thesis must stick to the rules of our style sheet.
