Your Thesis Review should take place 10-12 months (PhD) or 5-6 months (MPhil) after the Mid-Candidature Review (or the part-time equivalents). It should be approximately three months before the expected submission date of your thesis.

If there are valid reasons why this will not be possible then the Postgraduate Coordinator should be consulted and an application made to the Graduate School to extend the milestone due date.

Thesis Submission

Your Thesis Submission should take place within 3 months of your Thesis Review.

If there are valid research reasons why more time is required, you will need to apply to the Graduate School (via your myUQ portal) for an extension. You are allowed a maximum of 3 extensions across your candidature.

Please note that an extension will only be granted for research reasons out of your control. If your delay is due to health or personal reasons, you will need to apply for an interruption to candidature (official leave).

See UQ Graduate School website for additional information.
