Research degrees handbook

Also listed as: 
Research degrees handbook

Our research degrees handbooks tell you about the services available to you;  the regulations that apply to your registration;  and give advice about what to do at key points in your research degree studies.

While we have done everything possible to ensure accuracy, the information in the handbook may change during the life of an edition due to changes in regulations or policy or because of financial or other constraints. When regulations and policies are updated, the most current edition will apply to all students irrespective of when you registered, unless special provision is made for particular groups or cohorts of students.
