The supervisor adds the examiner(s) and approver (Head of Department/Dean) of the thesis on the thesis form. If you have been added as the approver, you will receive an email (from address firstname.lastname@example.org) to your utu-email from the UTUGradu system once the examiners have given their evaluation statements and the student(s) has either made an appeal or approved the suggested grades. Below you can find instructions for making the decision on the grade and on how the process proceeds.
1. Click the link in the email to access the UTUGradu thesis form (it is recommended to use Chrome or Firefox as a browser when filling in the form). Starting at the top of the page, you can view all the information on the form filled in previously in the process. You can download the thesis as a PDF file and read the examiners’ evaluation statements as well as the possible appeal made by the student(s) at the bottom of the page.

You do not have to fill in the form in one go, as you can and should save the information from the bottom of the form by clicking “Save and proceed to confirm”. After this, you can close the form and return to it via the link in your email.

When you are finished, click “Confirm and verify” at the bottom of the draft page. You can close the form/browser.
