Approval of Amendments

Where minor or major amendments are required the internal examiner (or designated external examiners where there is no internal examiner appointed) is responsible for reviewing and signing off minor/major amendments. Where the candidate has been asked to resubmit their thesis both members of the examining team will be required to re-assess the thesis.

Once the reviewing examiner is satisfied that the amendments have been completed satisfactorily they should notify the Doctoral College Office of this by completing and submitting a confirmation of amendments form:

Returning the Confirmation of Amendments Form

The completed form can be sent to the Doctoral College Office by email to or posted to:

Doctoral College Office
University of Leicester
University Road


Where examiners have concerns that the candidate has not adequately completed the required amendments, they should discuss their concerns with the Doctoral College Office.
