Defence/Examination Committee

Once a Student has completed their MRP, they must inform their Supervisor that they are ready to defend and provide the school of graduate studies with one digital copy of their MRP for distribution to the Examination Committee. (MRP guidelines available )

Students who have completed all their program requirements have the right to submit and defend a MRP, even if their Supervisor recommends otherwise.

Students will present the findings of the MRP in a public oral presentation to an Examination Committee, as well as members of the public.

The Examination Committee consists of the Supervisory Committee plus a third member, who is a member of the graduate faculty external to the program (but preferably from a cognate discipline or field), and is Chaired by the Graduate Advisor/Chair or designate.
