Thesis Presentation

Congratulations! You have arrived at one of the most critical steps of your studies - the presentation of your thesis.

We expect that you have already prepared your work following guidelines outlined in the UWS Research, Higher Degree Examination booklet (PDF, 613Kb). If not, we recommend you do immediately.

We appreciate that you have devoted considerable time and effort into researching and writing your thesis. Please read the information below so as to avoid any unexpected printing and binding issues.

You can complete this phase of your thesis by either using our online ordering system or visiting us in Building F, Penrith Campus, Kingswood.

Number of Exam Copies

PhD, Professional Doctorate and Masters (Hons) candidates are all required to submit a total of three copies of their thesis for examination. One copy remains in the safekeeping of the Office of the Academic Registrar while others are being examined.

We strongly recommend you confirm the above quantities are correct with the Office of Research Services or your direct supervisor before submitting your print order with us.

Remember to order additional copies for yourself and friends or relatives, especially with respect to your final case bound thesis. 

Service Times

Allow five working days for us to print and bind your exam copies and ten days for hard case bound copies.

If urgent turnarounds are required we will do our best, however, such requests are likely to incur a $100 surcharge.
