All candidates must enter for examination at least four months prior to thesis submission. 

To enter for examination, candidates should refer to the Examination Entry milestone visible in the Postgraduate Research Milestones tile in My Imperial, where you will be asked to provide details relating to your research topic, thesis title and expected date of submission. 

Your main supervisor will be asked to nominate examiners for your thesis, in accordance with the College's Procedure for Appointment of Examiners for Research Degrees.

The examination entry details and the examiner nominations will then be considered by the Director of Postgraduate Studies. Upon their approval, the examination entry will be processed by the Registry Assessment Records Team and you will receive written notification via email once your entry to examination is confirmed. 

Please note that candidates must submit their thesis by the given deadline displayed via My Imperial, regardless of the status of the examination entry paperwork.
