Information for Examiners

This page provides advice to Higher Degree Research Thesis Examiners. When the candidate submits their thesis for examination, it will be sent to the Examiner by the HDR Examinations Office. Please read the General Information for Examiners.

Please note that a thesis and its content is to be treated as 'in-confidence'. Under no circumstances should the thesis or its content be shared or discussed with a third party without approval from the Higher Degrees Research (HDR) Examinations Office, until such time as the candidate is notified of their final result. In the case of the thesis not being approved, the confidentiality requirement will remain in place. Non-Disclosure Agreements for restricted theses or appendices are supplementary to this requirement.
