1 Workshop 3 Writing a good thesis and graduating within a year: is it possible?

2 Which graph refers to Zoma and which one to HEPL?

3 Workshop objective Conclusions from the external auditing panel and the accreditation board were reason to tighten the thesis writing procedure for both HEPL and Zoma students. Hard deadlines are in place now and students are expected to submit intermediate products. At the same time we should ensure that the thesis is of satisfactory quality. Tightening of the procedure in Zoma shows that success-rate may be at odds with quality. This year we will know if this holds true for HEPL as well. Internal audit is due next year, external audit in three years. We must do better. How can we do better?
