Thesis by Publication

Thinking of doing a thesis by publication? There are many benefits of doing so.

Completion Review

  • Six months prior to thesis submission candidates and supervisors will approach potential thesis examiners to obtain their consent to participate in thesis examination.
  • Both international and domestic examiners should be chosen.
  • Around this time, the candidate and the supervisors will attend a Completion Review.
  • The Completion Review will be conducted by the Department HDR Director. The time line for submission will be set and the nomination of thesis examiners will be discussed.
