Submitting Your Dissertation

All candidates are required to submit the following by 12:00 BST on the day of the deadline: tba

Extension to Submission Deadline

No extensions will be given to the deadlines, with exceptions being made only for certified medical emergencies. If you need to apply for an extension, the request will need to come from your College Tutor, with copies of medical evidence (letter from GP, etc) either sent with the request or as soon as possible afterwards.

Dissertations submitted after the noon deadline will be penalised by 5 points for the first day, followed by 1 mark for each day of delay thereafter. If you experience personal or other difficulties that interfere with your work, you should consult your supervisor and/or College Tutor in good time for advice and assistance.

In exceptional circumstances, a case for late submission may be made through these authorities by using form MP16. The completed form must reach the Postgraduate Administrator well before the assignment deadline. In extreme cases personal problems may require periods of intermission of studies.

 

MPhil Viva Voce

Oral exams for MPhil dissertations are required only if a student is in danger of failing; however we also reserve the right to call you for one if we wish to decide about a borderline between a pass and a high pass.

 

Degree Approval and Conferment

Further information about this process is given on the Student Registry website. Once your marks have been approved by the Archaeology, Anthropology and Sociology Degree Committee, your College will be your primary contact regarding graduation arrangements.
