You will be asked to implement minor corrections within three months, which should not require you to conduct further research or undertake substantial further work. These can include typographical errors, clarifying points, rephrasing, editing/adding paragraphs, correcting references, etc.
Shortly after the viva, the PGRE team will send you the list of these corrections, which your examiners will have created. Whilst there isn’t a requirement to undertake another viva, the ‘Pass’ element of the outcome is only valid when all of the required corrections have been completed. Failure to complete the required corrections could result in the outcome of a lower award, or a fail.
When you receive the corrections, take some time to fully read them and then discuss them with your supervisor. If there are any corrections which require further clarification, please ask your supervisor to liaise with your internal examiner, or external examiners in the case of staff candidates. Remember your supervisor is available during your corrections period to support you if you require it.
Once your corrections have been completed, you’ll need to send the updated version of your thesis, showing tracked changes, along with a letter/statement explaining how you have addressed the corrections, to firstname.lastname@example.org The PGRE Team will liaise with your examiner (s) regarding the submitted corrections, which usually takes approximately two weeks. If the corrections are not deemed by your examiner(s) to have been completed satisfactorily, a further corrections period may be recommended.
Once your corrections have been approved by your examiner, the PGRE Team will seek formal approval by the relevant Faculty Dean (Postgraduate) and subsequently notify you that you can upload the new thesis to the Research Repository. This process can take up to two weeks.
