Assessment, submission and examination

  • It is your responsibility to ensure you have an understanding of the University's policies in relation to responsible research, plagiarism, academic honesty and ethical behaviour. If you have any questions regarding these policies you should approach your faculty.
  • A handy checklist of actions that you need to take before submitting your thesis for examination is available from the SUPRA website.
  • While the examination of your degree is governed by Academic Board policy and Senate resolutions, there are some discipline and faculty-specific variations to processes and suggested timelines for action. Ensure you check the details with your faculty office in the lead up to submission of your thesis.
  • The oral examination of a thesis may not be appropriate for some projects. Students should discuss the possibility of an oral examination with their supervisor and faculty early in their candidature. The Oral Examination Policy is available here.
  • The submission requirements and examination proceedures for the PhD are outlined in the Doctor of Philosophy degree resolutions. All candidates are encouraged to read this carefully. For all other higher degrees by research, consult the faculty resolution for the specific degree in the relevant faculty handbook.
