if you are a research student you will be assessed by the submission of a thesis which is examined by two examiners (one external and one internal examiner, or two external examiners). You will also be required to take an oral examination (viva) as part of the examination process.

You need to bear in mind a number of things when submitting your thesis, such as that your computer and email accounts will be closed shortly after submission, and that you need to keep your contact details up to date on Student Hub, so that the University can contact you.

For further advice on the submission and examination process please consult the sections entitled Preparation and Submission of a Thesis, The Examination Process, Information for Research Students on Thesis Submission and Examination included in the Code of Practice.
