Examiner Nomination and Thesis Submission

Submission of the thesis and the nomination of examiners are both necessary for examination to proceed. Ideally nomination of examiners should occur two months in advance of submission, or at least at the same time. Submission should take place between 3 and 3.5 years (FT) and 5 and 5.5 years (PT) of the candidature.

Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) or Graduate Research School (GRS) Administration

The GRS will send a reminder to the supervisor and Head of Unit 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 agreement (NB. candidates and supervisors must advise the GRS of an impending embargo at the time of submission). Examiners are asked to complete the examiners' thesis assessment report, which details the layout of the report.
