Examiners' joint report forms (postgraduate research)

The appropriate examiners' joint report form should be completed and signed by the examiners at the end of the viva. The front sheet (for signature) is provided in hard copy with the thesis (and includes information specific to the candidate under examination).

All sections of the report must be typed using the template provided. If the recommendation is that the thesis be referred for resubmission the examiners must also prepare notes for guidance and return these with the final report. The notes for guidance must be typed, headed "notes for guidance" and attached to the final examiners' report form.

Please ensure that you answer all questions clearly and fully and include in your responses specific examples from the thesis.  

Examiners should use the correct form for the degree being examined.
