Thesis examination

Guidance for Postgraduate Researchers

Once your examiners have been approved and all the appropriate forms for your initial thesis submission have been approved and you have uploaded your thesis, your thesis will then be sent to the approved internal examiner and external examiner(s).

You will be informed of your viva date by your School. After the viva takes place, the internal examiner and external examiner(s) send their reports to your School's Postgraduate Research Office. After you have submitted your final thesis, these reports are submitted to the Research Degrees Committee and the examiners' decision is considered.  You will be notified of your award approval in writing after this meeting.
