Master Projects


You can do your degree project (Master’s thesis) in Zoology within one of the four Master’s programmes we participate in:

You choose subject and scope (15, 30, 45 or 60 credits) yourself, together with your supervisor. It is advisable to contact potential supervisors well in advance, so that you have time to decide on a suitable project. If you want to do an empirical project you should also take into account that many of our projects are seasonally constrained; for example, some projects can only be done during the summer.

Here you can find some suggestions for projects. However, almost all researchers are interested in master students, and you can find additional potential supervisors on our research pages.
