Nomination of Thesis Examiners - for Graduate Research Co-ordinators

Back to Delphi Help Contents

This page contains useful information with regards to the online submission of the Nomination of Thesis Examiners form. If you are new to Delphi, you may wish to take a moment to familiarise yourself with the system before jumping into a form. See the general help page for more information about the Delphi system.

GRC Form Assignment for Approval

Forms in Delphi are not assigned to any one GRC within a school - they are assigned to a pool of GRCs. This pool is made up of:

  • anyone on Delphi's internal list of GRCs
  • anyone whose position is any one of the following:
    • Head of School
    • Head of Department
    • Head of Discipline
    • Dean

NB: variations such as "Deputy Head of Department" and "Head of Music" are also included in the pool of users who may act as the GRC.

Anyone a part of the pool of GRCs for a school will have access to all forms from students within the school. The intention behind the pool is to allow for easy handling of situations where the usual person is unable to approve of a form for any reason including but not limited to:

  • the GRC is on leave
  • the GRC is also a supervisor for the student

It is up to the schools to organise who amongst the pool of GRCs will be responsible for approving any one form.

Taking Action

Any actions required from you will be listed at the bottom of the Management page of the form.


Prior to progression to the GRS, you may return the form to the student and/or supervisors for revisions. Be sure to provide detailed feedback in the Discussion & Feedback tab to guide the revision. Once returned, you will again be asked to complete this section of the form to progress this form to the GRS.


Once submitted, processing by the GRS will commence. You may have revisions and/or clarifications requested of you by the GRS.
