Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral or Master by Research Thesis Excellence
Where an examiner has recommended that the degree be awarded with or without amendment (recommendation categories 1 or 2), examiners are also asked to indicate whether the thesis is outstanding and deserves a commendation for doctoral or master by research thesis excellence from the Dean of Graduate Studies.
If your thesis is rated by both examiners as worthy of a commendation, you will receive a letter of congratulations from the Dean of Graduate Studies and a record of the commendation will be added to the prizes and awards section of your academic transcript. Theses submitted within four years (doctorate) or two years (master by research), in which at least one examiner has recommended a commendation may also be eligible for a commendation, provided that all examiners have recommended the award of the degree.
