Your thesis and viva
As a postgraduate researcher you will be assessed entirely, or almost entirely, on your final thesis.
Depending on your course you may also have to defend your work in an oral examination, known as a viva.
Format your thesis
It is important that you present your work according to the University's specifications. Failure to do so may result in your submission being rejected.
Submit your thesis
You will need to submit copies of your thesis for examination. After making any corrections required by your examiners you will deposit final copies with the University.
PhD, MPhil and EngD students must sit an oral examination. MA/MSc by research students may be required to by their Board of Studies or at the examiners' discretion.
