For supervisors

Guidance for Internal/External Examiners and the University of Portsmouth Process - New online version

The Graduate School is pleased to announce that this workshop is now available online for research degree supervisors. This online workshop provides a flexible training opportunity for supervisors unable to attend the on campus workshop.  

The aim of this workshop is to acquaint supervisors with the main issues and procedures involved in preparing and submitting the research thesis and the preparation, purpose and conduct of the viva. Managing referrals, failures and appeals will also be covered. The workshop will also provide an overview of the role of the internal and external examiner, with a view to becoming one. Participants will be informed of what is required of an examiner, including how best to prepare for and manage the viva and its outcomes.
