The study period for master’s degree students usually is three years. If he/she can finish the required courses in advance, pass the oral thesis defense, and reach the publishing requirement, then he/she can apply to graduate early. The student who is pursuing the same level of education can not apply for graduation in advance. Those who show their talents and perform well during the master courses can continue to pursue a doctorate study directly. If one can not finish the schedule on time for any reason, one can apply for graduate extension, which usually takes one year. The main content for master’s study is attending courses and thesis writing.
