I am nearing the end of my period of registered study; how long is my thesis pending period? (for Doctorate/MPhil students only)

Question:
I am nearing the end of my period of registered study; how long is my thesis pending period? (for Doctorate/MPhil students only)
Answer:
Normally full time students - one year. Part time students - two years. Full time Doctorate students are required to submit their thesis within four years of their start date (eight years for part time students). Full time MPhil students are required to submit their thesis within three years of their start date (six years for part time students). If you have had a registered period of study more than three years full time or six years part time, your thesis pending period will be reduced accordingly.
