Thesis Guidelines

Additional Time Required to Book Oral Defences

To assist with GPS’s new administrative load associated with hosting and managing remote oral defences, all oral defences must now be scheduled on the GPS online oral defence calendar by administrative staff after the committee has selected a date and time. This may require a rescheduling on the part of the committee, if the selected date and time are not available by GPS. As such, longer than normal time delays should be expected and students are advised to start planning for their oral defence well in advance.

*PLEASE NOTE: Theses may require corrections prior to the Chair signing the Nomination of Examiners and Thesis Submission Forms. Students will be required to resubmit as soon as possible for a second review, once the corrections have been made. This should be done promptly in order to obtain the Chair’s signature and meet GPS submission deadlines.
