What about finding an external Master thesis on your own?
If you have the opportunity to carry out an external thesis with a company or research centre (e.g. arranged during a previous internship), you have to consider the following steps:
- Find a principal supervisor at one of the three IDEA League universities.
- Propose the Master thesis to the Joint Examination Board (send the Master thesis proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org). The Examination Board will decide whether the thesis is accepted.
Be aware that this procedure has to be completed no later than 11th November 2015, because all topics have to be assigned by this date for organisational reasons.
