During the second year of the InterMaths programme students will be working on their Master thesis, possibly co-tutored by two researchers, one for each of the two institutions involved in their degree programme. The thesis will be written in English.
The thesis defense will take place according to the teaching regulations of both the academic institutions involved.
The thesis defence will take place only once with a board of examiners including at least one professor/researcher for each of the two institutions awarding the master's degree title. It will be run starting from June (and no later than September!) of the second academic year but the student will have to have completed all their exams first!
Upon successfully completing all the activities of the InterMaths programme including successful defence of their thesis, students will be awarded a double degree issued by the two universities where the student has completed one academic year (having earned 60 credits minimum in each year) - this doesn't apply to students having spent both first and second year at the University of L'Aquila, who will obviosuly be awarded one degree only.
