Resubmission

Resubmission

For all resubmissions:

  • Your resubmission will be assessed by both your external and internal examiner. You must submit one electronic copy of your revised thesis to the Research Student Support Team (RSST) or Medical Sciences Graduate School (MSGS). Do not submit them to your School or Institute Office, supervisor(s), or directly to your examiners.

Your resubmitted thesis will be sent to the examiners for consideration who will assess the submission against the original recommendation and the list of corrections set out in the Joint Report. Examiners are asked to return their reports within 6 weeks of receiving the resubmission. If you are required to attend a second oral examination, this will normally be arranged within 3 months.

The outcomes available following a resubmission are as follows:

  • The immediate award of a PhD;
  • The award of a PhD subject to completion of minor corrections or minor revisions within a specified period, to the satisfaction of the internal examiner;
  • The immediate award of an MPhil instead of a PhD;
  • The award of an MPhil subject to completion of minor corrections or minor revisions within a specified period, to the satisfaction of the internal examiner;
  • The recommendation that no degree be awarded and the student be adjudged to have failed.
