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.
For a glossary of terms commonly used, go to the Index of definitions page.
Once the Nomination of Examiners has been approved and the thesis and application to be examined submitted then the Graduate Research School will send an electronic copy of the thesis to the examiners along with the Thesis assessment Recommendation and the Guidelines for Examiners. Tentative dates will then be scheduled for the defence and these will be confirmed nearer the time of the actual event.
