Exam Board and Outcome | The University of Edinburgh
So, something wonderful has happened, I have submitted my thesis! At the end of last month, I handed in three soft-bound copies of my thesis to the College of Arts Graduate School. Now I am waiting to hear when my viva examination will take place, a meeting where I will orally defend my work, responding to questions from an internal and external examiner. So this post aims to offer some guidance on the practicalities of submitting your PhD thesis when the time comes. Many of you will submit the thesis after a period of 'writing-up' or thesis pending status. Thesis pending status means that you are permitted a further year or longer if you are a part-time researcher to complete your thesis, during which time you continue to have access to the library, your study space and more limited support from your supervisors.
Submitting your thesis
Examiner Recommendation. After the oral examination, the examiners must make one of the following recommendations to the College Postgraduate Committee:. No further changes can be made to the thesis after examination; or. The thesis satisfies the requirements for the award of the degree except that editorial corrections are required or stated minor weaknesses, as identified by the examiners, must be remedied. In the opinion of the examiners, the student will be able to remedy these without further supervision and without undertaking any further original research.
University guidelines on the layout and presentation of your thesis are available. It is recommended that you consult them if you are unsure of how to present your thesis. You should also check with your School if they have any specific requirements for thesis presentation.
