6. Approval of the Examiners’ Recommendation


The recommendation of the examiners is subject to the approval of the Chair of the appropriate Faculty Education Committee who will scrutinise the examiners’ reports before approving the recommendation. There may therefore be a delay between the viva voce examination and the approval of the award of a degree by Steering Committee on behalf of Senate.


In the unlikely event that the examiners are unable to agree on the recommendation to be made, or if for any other reason a further opinion is required on the work submitted, an external adjudicator may be appointed. Please contact the Doctoral College as soon as possible to discuss the nomination and approval of an external adjudicator.
