For exchange students ONLY
If you wish to work on your thesis, dissertation or project while at BOKU, you should do some research and get in touch with your future BOKU tutor/supervisor beforehand.
In our research database FIS you can search for current research projects by key words.
Furthermore, the homepages of the institutes might help you to find a (co-)supervisor for your thesis or dissertation. Have a look at the List of Departments (the symbols on the left side of this website also lead you to the different department pages).
We do NOT recommend sending mass e-mails to multiple professors. Instead, please contact the department coordinator in charge.
Lists of Department coordinators/Project coordinators
Contact your coordinator at BOKU to find a supervisor. Please write an e-mail to your coordinator with the name of the programme you have completed, your home country and study programme, and explain that you would like assistance to find a supervisor (If you have already found someone on our website you would like to work with, please also add her/his name). You have to find a supervisor before applying!
For the Erasmus application, you have to include the following documents in your e-mail:
- Your CV
- A project/thesis/dissertation description
Please include an informal confirmation that your BOKU supervisor is willing to supervise you (e.g a copy of an e-mail) to your application. Only with this document we can accept your application. Please also add the thesis /project work to your Learning Agreement (course number: 000, ECTS number according to your BOKU supervisor or your home university).
Attention! Your master thesis, dissertation or project (without BOKU course number) will not be shown on the BOKU transcript of records. Please ask your supervisor for an evaluation letter (on official letter paper with signature and stamp).
