After the final version of your thesis has been approved by the Dean of Graduate Research, you will be emailed at your Flinders email address, with instructions to upload your thesis to the University's digital repository. Uploading your final thesis is a requirement of all HDR students.
All HDR students will have a sanction applied to their account until their final thesis has been uploaded to the library and approved. This sanction prevents you from receiving your Academic Transcript and Testamur. After receiving your completion email from the Dean of Graduate Research you should allow approximately 3 working days for your sanction to be removed. You can check whether you have a sanction by logging into your Student Information System and looking under the 'My Graduation tab' page.
You must follow the Library's submission instructions to upload a digital copy of your thesis to the Library.
There will be three steps to uploading your thesis:
- Consideration of copyright material in your thesis.
- Preparing your thesis files. Note: you have the option of submitting two versions of your thesis. If you do not have copyright permissions for applicable sections of your thesis you will need to upload a master copy of your thesis and a version of your thesis for public access.
- Consider if you need to embargo your thesis.
Once you have uploaded your thesis, The Office of Graduate Research will then confirm that you have completed the requirements for your degree.
