SUBMISSION DATES FOR
A PhD dissertation may be submitted for examination at any point in the year. An intention to submit form must have reached the doctoral office six months earlier. It is important to remember that the final cut-off dates for submission are not a guarantee of inclusion in the relevant graduation ceremony. Rather, they represent the last date on which a candidate can realistically be included in the relevant graduation series, assuming that the examiners were appointed early on, that the dissertation is received positively by all three examiners, that the oral report is scheduled within seven weeks from submission, and that the supervisor report is submitted directly thereafter. The final cut-off date for possible December graduation is 31 July; and the final cut-off date for possible March/April graduation is 14 October.
