Go to

Log into the system with your O365 account.

Select from the main navigation menu on the left side of the page whether to start a bachelor's or a master's thesis.

Select the study entitlement for which you are preparing the thesis.

Fill in the preliminary information about the thesis, i.e. the preliminary title and the name of a possible partner company, its business ID and the first and last name of the company’s contact person. The information related to a partner company is optional; it is only needed if the thesis is prepared in cooperation with a company or organisation.

If you are writing a join thesis type the name of other authors in Other authors field. Note that each student submits the thesis to Laturi independently. On the Finalised thesis page, each student submit an identical thesis (same file) as well as an identical abstract. Questions about the publicity of the thesis and plagiarism control system must be answered identically by each student.

Preview and confirm the information. You can edit the preliminary information after submission, if needed.

NOTE! You can have only one thesis process in Laturi. If you need to start a new process in Laturi, please contact Laturi helpdesk. Old thesis process must be deleted first so that you can start new one.

How I can make an accessible document?

At least the following should be taken into consideration in accessible Word documents:

  • The file structure (headings, paragraphs, lists) is created using the Styles menu, not, for example, by changing the font size.
  • The font is sufficiently large and intelligible (at least 12 pt), while the contrast between the font and background is sufficient and the text is aligned to the left.
  • Images have text alternatives that describe the image content to those unable to see the images.
  • Tables are created with the table tool of Word or Excel, and they contain a header row.
  • The language and title (not the same as file name) of the document are assigned in the properties.
  • Accessibility is ensured using Word’s Check Accessibility function.

Detailed and illustrated instructions for creating accessible documents are available on website (in Finnish only).
