Award

Once all required corrections have been completed satisfactorily and the recommendation is made that your degree be awarded, the reports will be forwarded to the Dean of Postgraduate Studies for approval.  You will then be notified of the final outcome in an email from the Research Student Support Team (RSST) or the Medical School Graduate School (MSGS). 

At this point, you will be asked to submit the following within 1 month:

Please note: Should you wish to restrict library access to your thesis for longer than the standard six months, you must notify RSST or MSGS on submission of your hardbound thesis.

Following receipt of the above, RSST or MSGS will produce your Pass List and a ‘Statement of Qualification’ confirming the award of the degree.  Both of these documents will be sent to you by email and a copy of the Pass List will be sent to the Congregations Office which is responsible for producing your degree parchment (certificate).  Once available, your degree parchment will be posted to you at your home address within 6 to 8 weeks of your pass list being produced.  Please ensure your home address is up to date by contacting either RSST or MSGS.
