18 Month Resubmission


A letter will be sent to you containing the reports from the examiners, with a copy being sent to your supervisor, Departmental Graduate Tutor and Faculty Graduate Tutor. The eighteen month deadline officially starts from the date of this letter.

Unlike the three month corrections, where one person checks the amendments,  resubmission requires you to re-enter for the examination and submit two copies of your thesis for forwarding to the examiners.

It is likely that your examiners will usually have returned their annotated copies of the thesis to you at the viva and therefore you may already be aware of the work required.

Once you have completed the corrections, your supervisor should confirm by email that the examiners are still willing to act and provide their current contact details. This is to avoid the thesis from being sent out incorrectly.  We will then send an email to your supervisor and examiners reconfirming their appointment and enclosing the relevant forms.

You will need to follow the following procedures:
•    Submit a new exam entry form to Research Degrees at least two weeks prior to the expected submission of the thesis.
•    Submit two soft-bound copies of your thesis to the Student Centre, Chadwick Building, which will then be despatched to the examiners.  It is at this point the resubmission fee will be charged (details on this can be found here.)

If the examiners have requested a second viva, your supervisor will arrange this. In these circumstances, the procedure will follow that of a typical research degree examination.

If a further viva is not required, your examiners are only required to submit the following signed reports:
•    Joint Report

They cannot award another eighteen month resubmission, but can allow three months minor corrections.

Once the reports are received we will follow the procedure for either the pass or three month corrections result.
