The PhD examination and appeals

Should it be necessary to submit a complaint, or appeal a decision of the Degree Committee, students are asked to follow the most appropriate course of action as outlined within the University webpage "Requesting a review of the results of an examination" or the University's Student Complaints section.

The Degree Committee scrutinises all PhD examination reports carefully before they are transmitted to the Board of Graduate Studies Committee for University consideration.

 

Your feedback is important to us

The Faculty would appreciate it if you could complete its exit questionnaire and return it via email to: degree-committee@hist.cam.ac.uk.

 

Careers Service survey

If you have signed up to the University Careers Service, they should invite you to complete a "final destination" survey; please can we urge you to do so, the Faculty is interested to know what career paths its graduate students take.
