Master's Examination

The final examination is an oral examination held before a committee of three examiners: the thesis supervisor, a second examiner, and a chairperson. The assessment consists of the defense of a master's thesis (i.e. a presentation of the master's thesis followed by the Q&A session) and an examination on topics related to the thesis. The examination committee awards a single grade after the end of the examination. 

  1. You first need to find a second examiner. Please discuss your choice with your thesis supervisor. Contact your examiners to discuss the topics that will be relevant for your exam.
  2. Please send the supervisor and second examiner names by email to the Finance Office finance.office@univie.ac.at and your proposed dates (agreed with supervisor and second examiner). We will find a chairperson for your exam. Your request should be sent to us at least four weeks before the scheduled examination date, preferably even earlier.
  3. As soon as the examination committee is complete and the date fixed, you will be informed by the Finance Office. Afterwards please send the completed "Application for Admission" and "Final Exam Registration" forms at least two weeks before the scheduled date to the SSC: https://servicedesk.univie.ac.at/plugins/servlet/desk/category/ffw.
