The degree project is to include the following assessed components:

The document describing the goals of the degree project is to be written at an early stage and must be approved by all supervisors and the examiner. It is to include a description of the problem to solve. The document is also to include a general description of the approach, choice of method, resource requirements and time needed.

The written report is to describe the degree project and its findings. If two students have collaborated on the project, the contribution of each student must be clearly discernible.

The written report is to be made available in a form suitable for review at least one week before the seminar, which is to be timetabled at some point between 15 August and the Monday of Midsummer week, with the exception of the period 22 December–6 January.

The oral critical review is to be based on a fellow student’s written report when it is presented at a public seminar. The review is to be documented in writing before the seminar. One degree project can be reviewed by more than one student.

Further information: One or several supervisors shall be appointed for each degree project. At least one of the supervisors (the principal supervisor) must be an employee of Lund University and hold at least a degree of Master of Science. In addition to the principal supervisor, assistant supervisors may be appointed. The supervisors will provide continuous supervision throughout the work on the project and are to ensure that, among other things, it is possible for the student to complete the project within a period of 15 weeks of full-time study. The student can only request supervision for a period of no more than 12 months.

When the document describing the goals of the degree project is written and approved, the examiner is to check whether the student has sufficient knowledge of the topic. The degree project is then to be registered in MittCampus.

The approval of the degree project is managed in MittCampus which, among other things, entails that it is registered and marked as passed in LUP Student Papers. The department is responsible for filing the report.
