Results will be released to students after we have received both examiners reports. The next stage of the examination process depends on the combination of examiners results.
Students who receive any combination of A, B, C will be required to make amendments to their thesis based on the examiner’s recommendations. Amendments to the thesis must be approved by the supervisor, the college HDR coordinator and the Dean of Graduate Research.
Students who are required to revise and resubmit their thesis will be re-enrolled in their degree, make amendments to improve their thesis and submit it for a second examination. Re-examination is only permitted once.
When examiner reports are significantly divergent the case will be referred to the University HDR Committee. The committee can make a determination on the grade or choose to engage a third examiner to provide additional expertise.
Students are required to submit a final electronic copy of their thesis to the library. There may be some theses that are embargoed for a period of time for various reasons, such as confidentiality or future publications.
