List of FAQs

+Do I need to submit a hard copy of my thesis?

During the current COVID-19 outbreak, hard copies of your thesis will not be required, and examiners will be sent the electronic copy only. 

The Higher Degree Entry Form can be sent with the thesis. We do not require physical signatures from the supervisor. An email confirmation in lieu of the signature is enough


Full guidance on submission of electronic copies can be found here.
