Event Details

Introducing the alternative format thesis – supporting students to write a thesis that includes publications and what to expect when examining one: RSAFT

This info/discussion session is for staff who supervise PGR students.

Since August 2016 the University has permitted doctoral students registered on the MPhil, PhD, EdD, DHealth and DBA programmes to submit an ‘alternative format’ thesis that includes publications. Supervisors and DoS are likely to have a general awareness of this development, but may not be familiar with the specifics of the changes.

To date a handful of such theses have been submitted and examined, however the format is still very new and supervisors may find themselves fielding questions from students keen to write in this style, but unsure of how to do so. Detailed guidelines on how to write a thesis that includes publications are given in the QA7 Appendix Specifications for Higher Degree Theses and Portfolios, and this session aims to provide additional support for academic staff who may soon be involved in advising students about thesis formatting choice, considering confirmation/transfer report content, discussing which materials may be included within the final thesis, or scrutinising one in a viva voce examination.
