Assessment of Research Degrees
The University arrangements for assuring the standards and quality of research degrees are aligned with Chapter B11 of the UK Quality Code (external website), whose Expectation is:
Research degrees are awarded in a research environment that provides secure academic standards for doing research and learning about research approaches, methods, procedures and protocols. This environment offers students quality of opportunities and the support they need to achieve successful academic, personal and professional outcomes from their research degree.
They are described in the University Ordinances and Regulations. See also the Guidance for Internal and External Examiners of Candidates for Research Degrees.
Further Information for Research Students is available from Student Administration and Support.
