The MSc thesis is an important part of your master programme. Students from the programmes MDR, MID, MLE, MLP and MOA can do their thesis with SDC if they meet the course requirements. The majority of the students that execute their thesis at SDC go abroad.

Check with your programme to see what the specific course requirements are to do a thesis at SDC.

Topics for thesis research

Many students come up with their own thesis topics or are inspired by our overview of thesis topics per supervisor. This overview gives information on the field of expertise of all SDC supervisors. Students can use this overview get inspiration on their topic or to see which supervisors fit best their research.

SDC also works with specific thesis vacancies. These vacancies are more specific and provide less freedom for a student to insert own ideas but they do guarantee a relevant and current thesis research. All thesis vacancies are posted here and on our social media channels.


An intake with Jessica de Koning will lead to a supervisor for your thesis. Jessica discusses thesis plans and appoints relevant and available thesis supervisor. Intakes can be booked via Calendly.
