Thesis Competition Second Round Finalists Announced

Congratulations to all edcom Thesis Competition Bachelor and Master finalists who have advanced to the final round!


Candidates passing through to the third and final round, will have their thesis judged based on the following criteria:

  • novelty (does the thesis offer a new and original insight)
  • scale (what is the magnitude of the achievement).

Each paper will be judged on a scale from 1 point (if it is not novel or has not a degree of scale) to 10 points (if it is a new and original idea or has a large degree of scale).

The winners of the competition will be announced on 2 March 2018.

Both winners will be awarded with a cash prize of €400 and a €400 EACA voucher for the schools, to be used on edcom and EACA educational initiatives.
