Support and guidance

The team are here to support you at all stages of your research degree. Prepare for each stage and find out about the support available to you. 


Early stage

Middle stage

Final stage

Thesis submission

  • You must submit two soft-bound copies of your thesis within your registration period.
  • You will then have a Viva of course, which is usually within three months of your submission
  • Depending on the outcome of your Viva, you may be asked to make some amendments to your thesis and resubmit.
  • Before we can award you degree, we need to add your thesis to our library in both bound hard copy and electronic versions. (In rare instances there may be an embargo of up to 12 months on making your thesis publicly available, eg. if it includes material awaiting publication elsewhere.)

And finally...

Once that is all done and dusted, it's time to think about graduation. Congratulations!
