Examiners and chairs

Our academic regulations and procedures are available on the university's Student regulations, policies and procedures page; including those on the roles of examiners and viva voce examinations.

If you are a Chairperson, please look at our Guidelines for Chairs document.

You'll find the Research Degree Candidate (RDC) forms to be completed before and after the viva voce examination belowExternal examiners - you can also download a contract for appointment which you'll need to sign and return to the Doctoral College. If you want to claim for expenses or give feedback, you can find the relevant documents on this page.
