Omschrijving The individual Master’s thesis is the conclusion of the Master’s programme Real Estate Studies. It entails an individual academic research project developed and executed by the student – whether or not at a company or other institution – under the supervision of one of the researchers at the Faculty.

Students are free to choose a topic, provided it is both societal and academic relevant, and contributes to the body of literature in Real Estate Studies. Preferably, topics relate to the research agenda of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences SS and the Real Estate Centre.

The Master offers a RES Thesis module throughout the year with seminars and instructions for input and feedback. During the RES Thesis Module, students will develop research ideas, and work on a sound research proposal which has to be submitted, presented and approved before undertaking the research. The Thesis Module is compulsory and must be successfully completed before the student is assigned to a supervisor.
