Thesis Submission (Information for Staff)

Intention to submit

At least 3 months in advance of the submission of your thesis, your supervisor should fill in an Intention to Submit form. The form gives details of your examiners, and should be signed by you, your supervisors, your head of Division and the external examiner(s) and include the external examiners' CV, before being sent to:

  • Claire Neillie, Mailbox 6, Level 7, Ninewells Hospital and Medical School  (School of Medicine)
  • Nicola McEwan, (Dental School)
  • Amanda Mathers (School of Nursing & Midwifery)

for approval by the Higher Degrees Committee and subsequent signature by the Chair of the Higher Degree Committee. The signed form is sent to Registry, once it has been approved by the Research Degrees Committee. Registry will deal with your thesis once it is submitted.

Presentation and layout of the thesis

The University of Dundee have basic regulations for the presentation and layout of your thesis. It is also essential that you sign a declaration which states that you are the author of the thesis, that you have consulted all of the cited references, that, unless otherwise stated, you have performed all of the reported work and that the work has not previously been accepted for a higher degree. Your supervisor should sign a separate statement that the conditions of the relevant Ordinance and Regulations have been fulfilled.


Three copies of your thesis should be submitted. One copy should be submitted to Registry (1 Airlie Place, DD1 4HN) and the remaining two copies should be given to the convener of the examination. For the purpose of the initial submission, copies of the thesis may be presented in temporary binding.
