Thesis submission extension fees

If you are submitting your thesis as a non-registered student you may have to pay a submission extension fee.

f you do not submit your thesis by the end of your period of completing research status, your registration as a student will end. At this point you will need to apply for permission to submit your thesis. Your supervisor will need to support this request by completing the suspension of regulations form, giving the reasons for your late submission and the date by which you intend to submit your thesis. This should be emailed to the Research Degrees section.
