Contact person Evan Goss, employed at Baltic University Programme
This is the registration form for the BUP Master Thesis Training 2024 to be held between 25-28 March 2024 in Uppsala, Sweden.

This event, including food and accommodation, is free of charge for master students studying at a BUP participating university. All students must however cover all travel costs to and from Uppsala, Sweden, themselves.

Due to the war in Ukraine we will invite students from our participating universities in Ukraine to take part in the Master Thesis Training online. Ukrainian students that partake online will get to present their thesis to other students within the same field as well as receive feedback on their thesis from an expert from another BUP participating university. Of course, if possible, Ukrainian students are welcome to join the event in-person in Uppsala, however, the BUP recognises that this may not be possible for all. If this is applicable to you, please complete the sign-up form as usual, and if accepted to the event, the organisers will be in touch with more information and to confirm details.
