Assessment and oral examination

When you have submitted your Master's dissertation, IFIKK will appoint an examination committee, and you will be invited to an oral examination.

Oral examination

  • The oral examination is on a par with any other examination.
  • The time and date of the oral examination will be set by the department.
  • A re-scheduled examination will only be granted in the event of illness or other valid absence.
  • You will be notified at your student e-mail address when your examination committee and the date and time of your assessment and oral examination have been set, at least one week before your examination.
  • The oral examination lasts for up to one hour, but normally takes about 45 minutes.
  • It is up to you whether you want to be told the grade for your Masters dissertation immediately or if you want to be told your final grade at the end.
  • The oral examination adjusts your grade, and consists of questions regarding your Master's dissertation, and an explanation of the grading of your dissertation.
  • The explanation must account for the general principles applied to the assessment and the assessment of the candidate’s performance.


  • You will receive an oral explanation of the grade during the oral examination.
  • A written explanation will also be sent to your student e-mail address a few days after your examination.


  • Your diploma will be sent to you 1–2 months after your oral examination.
  • The Faculty of Humanities will issue the diploma. See Ordering diplomas at the Faculty of Humanities.
  • The diploma will be sent by recorded delivery. In order to receive your diploma, StudentWeb must therefore have your correct semester address, and your full name must be written on your letter box.
  • The ordinary rules regarding appeals apply to the assessment of Master's dissertations.
  • Questions or remarks?
