Submitting your thesis

Another University procedural matter relates specifically to the submission of theses. It is important to be aware of these procedures before preparing your thesis for examination. Before submitting a Higher Degree by Research thesis for examination, you must ensure that the format of your thesis complies with University regulations.

  • Guide to candidature
    Deakin University Research Services Division has provided a detailed Guide to Candidature that includes instruction on formatting and presenting a Deakin University thesis for examination.

After examination and the formal acceptance of your thesis, in addition to the two print copies you are required to submit, you have the option of submitting your thesis electronically. Deakin University is part of the Australasian digital theses program, a database of digital versions of theses produced by the postgraduate research students at Australian Universities.

  • Australasian Digital Theses Program
    The Library provides information regarding the Australasian digital theses program and how you can submit a copy of your Deakin University thesis electronically.

Submission requirements for students undertaking minor theses will differ. Your supervisor will advise you of your Faculty requirements.
