Your supervisor should submit Nomination of Examiners forms in Inspire three months before you submit your thesis. These forms will recommend two examiners who are experts of international standing, have empathy with your theoretical research framework, and be external and independent of Flinders University. These examiners will be considered and checked to ensure that there are no real, perceived or potential conflicts of interest. The Dean of Graduate Research reviews and approves the final nomination of your examiners.
