FAQ 291
Who do I send my minor amendments to for approval and what happens next?

You have up to 12 weeks in which to undertake minor amendments and submit them to your Internal Examiner for approval. You are, however, encouraged to complete your minor amendments as soon as possible within this period. 

The External Examiner may also need to approve them and you should refer to the letter sent to you from Postgraduate Administration for details.  

The Internal Examiner must notify Postgraduate Administration that the amendments have been done to his/her satisfaction. 

The Dean of Graduate Research will then recommend to the Vice Chancellor that the degree be awarded.

Please refer to the Code of Good Practice: Boards of Examiners for more information.

Postgraduate Administration will then write to you to confirm the award of your degree and ask you to submit the final copy of your thesis. Please see details on how to submit to Open Research Exeter (ORE) or how to submit hard bound copies

You will also be asked if you wish to attend Graduation or receive your degree in absentia. If you wish to attend Graduation, you must register by the date advised in the email. Late registration for Graduation ceremonies is unlikely to be possible.
