The following information is relevant to master’s degree students who are doing a research dissertation or interrelated publishable manuscript/published articles, and doctoral students doing a thesis or interrelated publishable manuscript/published articles which they want to submit for assessment.

Submission of dissertations and theses can take place throughout the year, but due to the assessment procedures, we cannot guarantee that the degree will be conferred at the following graduation ceremony.

You must submit the research at least four months before a graduation ceremony to ensure that the degree can be conferred during that graduation ceremony. However, it may still be possible that you will only receive your qualification during the next graduation ceremony, due to issues regarding the assessment or changes required to the research.
