Different PhD award categories across universities


User: jimmynew - 22 March 2012 12:56

Hi,

I'm interested in the different award classifications across universities to award PhD. I wrote on here a while back about how I got Resubmission but at Manchester University any revisions over one month is automatically classed a Resubmission. I recently gave a talk on viva preparation to some postgrads where I currently work at newcastle and the window for revisions is up to 6 month. Had a look at a couple of universities' guidelines and they are widely divergent (4 weeks to a year!)

Basically this seems a bit of an odd one in that the same qualification can be assessed so differently across institutions and I wondered if there was any link that showed the differences across universities and why they exist. Surely it's in no one's interest to have different criteria-students or universities?

Any help much appreciated
