1. Submit intention to submit

The Intention to Submit is shown on your milestone 3 months prior to your maximum thesis submission date. You must lodge this form on HDRhub prior to submitting the Nomination of Examiners (NOE) or Thesis for examination.

This will inform your supervisors that the thesis is at the final stage of submission, and that they can start looking for suitable examiners for you.

If you intend to submit your thesis earlier than your minimum submission date, please provide the reason in this form.

If your expected submission date is later than the maximum submission date, please lodge an 'extension' request and have it approved before you can proceed with this form. 

2. Submit nominations of examiners

At least three weeks before your intended thesis submission date, your co ordinating supervisor should submit a Nomination of Examiners in the HDRhub.

On this form, supervisors declare that the nominated examiners comply with the eligibilities listed in the Conflict of Interest and Independence of Examiners Policy.

Examples of different types of conflict of interest for examination of higher degree by research theses are available here


3. Thesis submission

Lodge the Submission of Thesis form on HDRhub.

You must upload an electronic copy of your thesis in PDF format only. A temporarily bound copy of your thesis is no longer required unless there is a request from the examiner. 

Ensure your thesis includes the required declarations. A proforma for the front pages of your thesis that includes these declarations is available here. Please include these front pages, complete with the appropriate signatures, in the electronic version of your thesis. 

Upon approval, you can email [email protected]  with a subject line "Mug Collection" to make an appointment to collect the red/blue mug. Appointments can be made during our reception opening hours which are 10am to 12 pm, and 2 pm to 4 pm.

Make sure that you refer to your School/Centre's website or handbook for any requirements that you must meet prior to submission.
