Increased job chances

Did you know that companies on Excelerate are interested in more than just a thesis collaboration?

Having visionary strategies, companies are actually eager to find a fitting candidate well in advance of the hiring itself. This could be you!

And the best way for you to earn a reputation as a good potential employee is by closely collaborating with a company. That’s one of the many benefits of thesis collaboration between students and companies!

The cure for unemployment

In Denmark, 1 out of 6 graduates do not have a job 1 year after graduation. Of those who do get a job, on average, 20% work with something they are overqualified for, compared to their degree level.

Those are some fairly dark statistics…

Thankfully, there is a bright side to it all! You don’t have to end up in those numbers! If you wonder how – you have to make yourself visible to companies in your industry. And collaborating with a company on your thesis topic is the way to go!

Universities and companies agree on one thing:

Bridging the gap between them by a proper study job and/or writing your thesis in collaboration with the company is the best way to move towards your dream career. Excelerate will help you to get your thesis topic in front of those companies. Sign up today!

How does it work?

Excelerate facilitates the whole thesis matching process – from making your thesis topic visible to companies to the final confirmation

List your thesis topic

Bachelor, Candidate and Master students from all universities in Denmark can list their thesis topic on Excelerate. The listings are anonymous, to avoid biases towards gender, ethnicity and age.

Invite your student group members to Excelerate and add them to your common thesis topic so the company can see all the profiles they eventually would engage with.

If you are not sure about practicalities we have a thesis guide for you that will help you to make your thesis topic shine from among the other passionate students.

Excelerate FAQ for students

Does Excelerate initiate both thesis collaborations and jobs?

Yes and no. Excelerate is the medium for students and companies to meet in order to get a thesis collaboration started. Excelerate does not offer jobs and is neither a jobsite but it is free for students to sign up and use Excelerate.
However, the thesis collaboration also works as a pre-recruiting service. Meaning that the companies can use the thesis collaboration to get to know you, the student, your competencies and then make a job offer after the collaboration has ended if they see you as a fit.

What is a thesis topic?

A thesis topic is what you, the student, upload on Excelerate’s website, which contains a thorough description of the thoughts on your thesis. The thesis topic is used for companies to search for which students they would like to work with on a thesis collaboration.

Is it the students or the companies who reach out to one another?

After you have listed your thesis topic, companies can see the topic on Excelerate – they will reach out to you. It is not the students who reach out to the companies to begin with. However, if a company reaches out to you, you can reply when a connection is made.

If I am in a thesis group can I then invite others to the platform?

Yes! And it is actually important that you invite your thesis group members to the platform, and your thesis topic, so companies can see how many students they potentially will collaborate with. You invite your thesis group members when signed in on Excelerate and then you can invite them when editing your thesis topic under the “Members” section.

How long does it take before a company reaches out?

The time before a company reaches out to a student or a group varies a lot, it can take days, weeks or a month. It depends on how relevant companies see your thesis topic. However, new companies are continuously joining the platform, so be patient.
