Preparing for leaving the University

While your thesis is being examined there are two aspects to be aware of:

  • Applying for a Postgraduate Publishing Bursary – if you have submitted in under 1.5 EFTS (equivalent to 18 months full-time study), and are not working more than 10 hours per week, you should be eligible for this grant, which provides up to 2 months funding support to allow you to publish from your thesis
  • Losing access to resources, including your Otago email address – during the examination process you should be able to continue accessing resources such as your ID card, wifi, the Library, Blackboard, and after-hours access to buildings. If you do lose access to these resources, support is available to determine whether you should continue to have access. Email

When you submit your final thesis after completing the examination process, you immediately lose access to the above resources. Please ensure you have tidied your office in preparation for leaving the University.
