Aprroval of the thesis

The thesis can be approved once the reviewers have completed their evaluation. The approver can approve the thesis by selecting the thesis and opening the approval form.

The approval form contains the following information:

  • Grade, 
  • Remarks to the student

  • Remarks for the study register extract 
  • Date of approval 

After the approver has completed the form, he/she must verify that the information on it is correct and approve the thesis. The student, main supervisor and other supervisors will be notified of the approval by email. The approval will be recorded into the study register and the thesis is submitted for publication in the University of Oulu publication repository Jultika.

If the thesis is rejected, the student’s thesis process is terminated immediately. The action cannot be undone. The student will be notified by email that his/her thesis has been rejected and that he/she should contact the main reviewer of the thesis.

Possibility to return the work for evaluation before approval

The approver has the option to return the work for re-evaluation for example if the reviewer has accidentally given the work the wrong grade and has already requested approval. Once approval has been requested, a blue button with the text "Return to be evaluated" will appear in the review section. By pressint this button the review section will change to orange and a red button "Delete" will appear on the right-hand side of the section. Pressing that delete button the old evaluation will deleted and the reviewer can do the new evaluation of the work.
