If you are a hard working student and you are interested in doing an undergraduate thesis under my supervision starting in April 2012, 2013 or after, please contact me to discuss potential projects. It is advantageous to do an undergraduate thesis in your third year if you can as it leaves the 4th year for publishing it... Having a publication is a plus value when applying at the MSc level, for scholarships or to distinguish yourself in an interview.
All my undergraduate students (or those in collaboration) succeeded at publishing their honours thesis in peered reviewed journal (see below). Will you be the next one?
