Congratulations on completing, or nearing completion of, your course! This section has information about what will happen between now and the point you join the global Antonian alumni community.

Master's students

Once your results are released you will be sent an email informing you that your assessment results and the result for the year (if applicable) are available to view in the University's Student Self Service. If you have completed your studies you will also be able to view your final classification.

If you need to resit one or more papers, or wish to appeal a result (note that appeals that challenge the examiners' academic judgement are not permitted), please refer to the University Student Handbook and contact the College Registrar for more information.

University guidance:

DPhil students

After your viva, you will normally be asked to make some changes to your thesis, which are either considered to be 'minor corrections' or 'major corrections'. These may take anywhere from a week to several months to complete. Occasionally students pass the viva with no corrections, or have a significant number of changes to make and are required to re-submit the thesis. 

At the point that any required changes have been approved by the examiners, you will receive a letter giving you 'leave to supplicate', i.e. notification that you have met the requirements of the DPhil degree in full. You will then be invited to sign up for a graduation ceremony.

University guidance for research students:

DPhil students' University card end date may not in the end reflect when you actually complete your degree. Your University card will expire when you receive leave to supplicate. As with all completing students, you can continue to access your email for another month after this date and emails can be forwarded for a further two months if you set up auto-forwarding
