Research dissertation prize

Every year the Research Degrees Examination Board awards a prize for the best dissertation in each Faculty.


To be eligible, you must have been awarded a doctoral degree within the academic year.

Internal and external examiners can nominate suitable dissertations. Nominations are noted at the Research Degrees Examination Board at which the degree is awarded.

Judging process

All nomination forms will be collated for the first Research Degrees Examination Board of the following academic year. Before the Board meeting, each Faculty PGR Director will consider the nominations and will make a recommendation for the prize in their faculty. At the Board meeting, members consider the proposed order and agree the winners.

Announcement of results

The winners are informed and a brief citation is produced for when the Board officially announces the awards.
