Thesis Stream students must follow the guidelines and procedures set by The School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS). Please review all of the information on the SGPS website carefully. There are many details related to the thesis writing and examination that need to be reviewed.
Please visit the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS) website for information on thesis regulations.
Thesis Submission and Timelines
Please visit the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS) website for information on submitting your thesis (including formatting, copyright, forms etc.) You will also find a timeline on this site which identifies the deadlines for submitting your thesis to graduate within a specific term.
Please work with your Thesis/Research Supervisor to identify a thesis examination date. You will need to ensure your thesis is approved by your supervisor (and necessary paperwork completed) in order to proceed to the thesis examination. Your thesis supervisor will need to ask faculty at Western and at Bresca (Division of Food and Nutritional Sciences) to participate as your Thesis Examination Committee. All of this information needs to be shared with the Graduate Program Coordinator so that the proper paperwork can be completed and submitted to SGPS for approval.
Thesis examinations are usually held in the Oak Room in Ursuline Hall (and may also be held in another room depending on availability). Thesis students are expected to prepare a 10 minute powerpoint presentation, presented at the beginning of their thesis examination. The thesis examination usually lasts 2 hours.
