Submission of the thesis

Submission of the Master thesis - Procedure 

Once the master’s work has been corrected and accepted by the director of the work and the person in charge if applicable, the procedure is as follows:

1. A pdf version, as a priority, must be sent to the student secretariat of the Biology Section (sent by e-mail to secretariat-biologie(at)

2. After validation of the dissertation and receipt of the grade, the secretariat will send a confirmation to the student by e-mail.

3. The student must then deposit the dissertation (in electronic version) in the Open Archive and send the official confirmation (including the link) of the deposit in the Open Archive to the student secretariat of the Biology Section (obligatory).

4. Once all these steps have been taken, the Student Secretariat of the Biology Section will forward the grade to the Faculty of Science for the establishment of your degree.

For the Master's degree to be formally awarded, this process must be completed before the end of the examination session of the last semester of the Master's degree. Depending on the arrangements of the department concerned, hard copies may also be required for the director (and referee if applicable) and/or the department.

You will receive your diploma by post within approximately 3 weeks.
