The GRS will send a reminder to the supervisor and Head of School two months prior to the candidate's due submission date. When the DRC has approved the nominations (and this may not always happen first time with all nominations), the GRS will write and formally invite the nominees to be examiners. A thesis copy is sent by courier to the international examiner, and will not be returned unless it is sent under a confidentiality agreement (NB. candidates and supervisors must advise the GRS of an impending embargo at the time of submission).
Examiners are asked to complete the Notes on the preparation of Examiner's Report which details the layout of the report.
