Requirements for graduation

Amendments

Consult with your supervisor to complete any amendments required by the examiners. Get the final version approved by your supervisor(s) on a PGR14 Form.

Doctoral and master’s – hardbound copy

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As of 1 September 2017, a hard bound copy is no longer required to be submitted for deposit in the library. Only a digital copy is required to be deposited on the Scholarly Commons (see below). However, you may still wish to get hard bound copies made for yourself/your supervisor etc).

For the format and layout of your final amended thesis please refer to the Postgraduate Handbook (pages 116-118).

Don’t forget you still need a signed Attestation of Authorship bound into the final copy, plus a completed and signed PGR15 Form to accompany your digital deposit.

Doctoral and master’s – digital deposit on Scholarly Commons

You are still required to deposit a digital copy of your thesis/dissertation on the AUT Library Scholarly Commons.

Instructions for how to deposit your digital copy on Scholarly Commons

 

Honours Dissertations and Practice Research Projects  - digital deposit on Scholarly Commons

If you are completing a bachelor's degree with honours dissertation, or a Master's degree with a Practice Research Project, you do not need to provide a hardbound copy. You need to complete any amendments required by the examiners and get your supervisor to sign the PGR14 Form.

This should then be forwarded to Bonnie Brannigan together with a digital copy of your final amended dissertation for our files.

First class dissertations and practice research projects are digitally deposited in the library on the Faculty’s recommendation. Download a PGR17 Form, sign it and send to Bonnie Brannigan for approval, together with your signed PGR14. She will return it to you once it has been approved by the Associate Dean Postgraduate.

Practice Projects

These are not deposited in the AUT library. You still need to complete any amendments required by the examiners and get your supervisor to sign the PGR14 Form.

This should then be forwarded to Bonnie Brannigan, together with a digital copy of your final amended Project for our files. Once we have received these, we will notify Graduation that you have completed the necessary requirements.

Embargoed theses and dissertations

You may have had an embargo approved at the time of examination, however your thesis/dissertation will still need to be deposited in the library and will be held in archive until the embargo expires. The embargo form should be inserted in the front of the bound copy or (preferably) bound in.
