Receiving Theses for Examination

The Doctoral College Office will send out research degree candidates theses to the examining team by post as soon as the examining team has been formally approved by the Director of the Doctoral College.
First Submissions

Examiners will receive:

  • a soft-bound copy of the candidate's thesis
  • details of the other members of the examining team and their contact details
  • a copy of the examiners joint report template
  • a form and guidance for claiming fees and expenses (external examiners only)

Examiners will be notified by email when the thesis has been issued.

Resubmissions

Examiners will receive:

  • a soft-bound copy of the candidate's thesis
  • details of the other members of the examining team and their contact details
  • a copy of the examiners (resubmission) joint report template
  • a form and guidance for claiming fees and expenses (external examiners only)

Examiners will be notified by email when the thesis has been issued.

Examiners are reminded that the award outcomes for referred theses differ from those available at first submission stage:

Practice-Based Degrees

Where the candidate to be examined is registered for a practice-based degree there is also a requirement to review and assess the practical component of the submission.

Where this cannot be sent by post (i.e., in cases where the practical component relates to an exhibition or visual display) then the candidate's department will be responsible for making the assessment arrangements and confirming this to all members of the examining team.
