* The deadline for submitting thesis on the Master's Thesis (TFM) platform is 11 pm (hard-copy format cannot be accepted).
Upload onto the MFG app (https://aserv2.udg.edu/TFGM/FC) the PDF of the thesis you need to save under the format: surnames.name. You will need to bear in mind that the Master's Thesis report must be headed by the Master's Thesis Cover Sheet (it is a compulsory requirement for the cover sheet to be signed by the Master’s Thesis supervisor and/or co-supervisor)
The Master Thesis Evaluation will be carried out by a panel comprising three members (one from the Department of Biology, one from the IdiBGi and one from the Department of Medical Science) designated by the coordinator in accordance with the Master Academic Council. The assessment will be based on the Final project report, written up by the student (35% of the mark), its public defence (35% of the mark) and a report on the lab stay provided by the tutor (30% of the mark). Below, are a number of indications for each of these three elements:
Instructions (content and format)
The Master's Thesis (TFM) synthesises and integrates the knowledge obtained during the course.
Written TFM report
A report on the work between 25 and 50 pages long will have to be deposited. The report must include the following sections: summary in two languages, Catalan or Spanish and English (between 2,000 and 3,000 characters including spaces), introduction, goals, methodology, results, discussions (results and discussion can be written up together in a single section), conclusions and bibliography. The report can be written in Catalan, Spanish or English. You will find the specific instructions in the subject moodle.
Remember that a front (COVER) page will have to be included, before the contents of the summary and report, stating clearly the work’s title and author, the details of the tutor (and co-tutor, where applicable) and the company or institution the work was carried out in. The approval of the tutor must be included (and the co-tutor where this applies), certifying that the work has been carried out under their supervision and that it has been reviewed before being submitted [signed electronically], as well as an email contact address. When the report is deposited an email must also be sent to the Academic Secretary’s Office the FC email@example.com and to the coordination body for the Master's degree firstname.lastname@example.org attaching a deposit document with the signed authorisation from the tutor (and co-tutor where this applies). In this document, and where applicable, the student can indicate that both the author and the tutor for the work authorise its public display in the UdG library, under the conditions set out in article 7 of the UdG’s regulatory framework on the TFG and the TFM.
Public defence of the TFM
The student will have 15 minutes to outline the work and a further 10 minutes for questions and answers. The defence must be based on the explanation of the objectives, the techniques carried out and the discussion of results (whether positive or negative), placing them in the context of the laboratory where the work was carried out. The panel will evaluate the written report and the student’s oral defence. Each of the two scores will represent 35% of the final TFM mark.
The tutor will send a confidential report to the coordinator on the breakthroughs made by the student while working on their thesis and will also rate the student. This mark will represent the remaining 30% of the TFM mark.
