The Graduate Subcommittee has reviewed the process for notification of oral thesis exams, and we have decided to make a slight revision to accommodate our growing numbers within SKHS and to align with requirements for SGS.
Effective January 1st, 2021, we will be requiring:
Note – during the COVID-19 pandemic, all Oral exams will be scheduled remotely. Any guests who wish to attend should be approved by the Supervisor. For more information about remote thesis exams please visit the SGS website: https://www.queensu.ca/sgs/current-students/degree-completion/remote-thesis-examinations
Students may not provide corrections to their thesis after it has been submitted to the examining committee in preparation for the oral defense. If the edit is substantial, i.e. a page or more affecting the examiner’s ability to understand the document, it may be granted on a one-off basis. Arrangements may be made via the SKHS Graduate Assistant.
Permission of Co-Authors Form (instructions are sent directly to student via email once their defense has been confirmed)
An email is sent by the SKHS Thesis Coordinator to the Supervisor, Examiners, and Chair via email referring to the appropriate form below:
A copy of these regulations is provided to the Chair as part of the oral defense package provided 3 days prior to the oral defense date.
