*Please note that where a viva is required for a Masters by Research student then the Preliminary Reports and Joint Report on the PhD tab should be used instead of the above two separate reports - thanks, RSA.

*Where Examiners need to complete a re-examination of a Masters by Research thesis, then again, the Preliminary Reports and Joint Report on the PhD tab should be used instead of the above two separate reports. Preliminary Reports are required whether there is a viva at re-examination or not.
