Doctoral thesis submission around the Christmas closedown period

The University is closed for the Christmas break from 21st December to 6th January inclusive. The last day for doctoral thesis submissions in 2018 is Thursday 20th December and we will need to receive the doctoral thesis (and all the necessary documents) at the Faculty of Graduate Research, 10 Kelburn Parade, by 11am. Please make an appointment with the Examinations Team to submit your thesis by emailing

Students who are currently registered to 31 December 2018, will have until 4.00pm on Friday 11th January 2019 to submit without needing to re-register. Submissions after that time will require a further period of registration - no exceptions - and students will be liable for further fees.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at Otherwise, we wish you well for the final stages of your thesis and for the rapidly approaching, festive season.
