PhD Submission at UOW

All students who are completing Masters of Philosophy or a Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Wollongong need to submit their thesis according to the following guidelines Thesis Submission and Graduation (current as of February 16, 2017).

Some key links:

  • Guidelines for preparation, submission and examination of thesis here
  • Nomination of examiners form here
  • Online submission of your actual thesis here

You can always use turnitin to ascertain that your thesis is free of plagiarism. I encourage you to do so, even if you have been meticulous in your transcription of quotations, we can all make fundamental errors in referencing when we are tired.
