Submitting your thesis for Examination
University rules require you to notify your supervisor in writing of your intention to submit your thesis for examination. Intention to submit is usually taken in consultation with your supervisor who needs to be satisfied that you have fulfilled the necessary requirements.

You will receive notifications once it has been approved by your supervisor and distributed, and once all the examiners have confirmed receipt.
For queries please contact your Faculty or Department.

IMPORTANT: While examiners have a guideline of 4 weeks (Masters) or 6 weeks (Doctoral) within which to examine and submit their reports for a thesis, examiners may take longer and once submitted all reports must serve via the University's governance processes. The entire process of examination may therefore take between 2-3 months (or longer under extreme circumstances).
