INVITATION TO EXAMINERS TO RE-EXAMINE
APPOINTMENT OF EXAMINERS
An examiner who previously passed the initial thesis, subject to modification, may be approached to re-examine the thesis. This would happen in instances where the University had previously determined that the thesis required additional work requiring further enrolment. When making a determination on the thesis outcome, the University takes into account all examiner reports plus any other relevant information.
When a thesis is re-submitted for examination, a detailed report is compiled by the candidate outlining the exact changes made to the thesis during the period of re-enrolment and submitted to HDRC. The revised thesis, detailed report and recommendation form are sent to the examiners.
Approval to submit a revised thesis for re-examination must first be sought from the Faculty Associate Dean HDR.RE-EXAMINATION
The purpose of the thesis re-examination is to determine whether or not the revised thesis now meets the requirements of the degree as outlined in the documentation forwarded to Examiners. It is not expected that examiners of the re-submitted thesis will recommend that new areas of research investigation should be undertaken by the candidate for the finalisation of the thesis.
