This page contains various Faculty forms to be used by postgraduate students:

  • The Appointment of PhD Examiners form should be used when PhD students are getting ready to submit, and would like to have examiners approved. Please discuss this with your PhD supervisor.
  • The Conference Expenses form below should be used by any postgraduate students wishing to apply for funding towards attending conferences/workshops.  Eligible expenses include registration, travel & accommodation.
