We recognise that the Covid-19 restrictions have had, and may continue to have, a significant impact on PGR’s research projects and/or theses. In response to this situation, we are introducing an optional impact statement to enable a PGR to explain to their examiners how their project/thesis has changed as a consequence of the Covid-19 restrictions.
