After converting your thesis into PDF/A, validating it in the PDF/A validation, and submitting it to the Turnitin assignment on the Moodle course (return to the first three steps of these instructions by clicking “Previous”), you can fill in the information on the UTUGradu thesis form. You can find the link to the form in the email you have received from the UTUGradu system.
1. Go to the UTUGradu thesis form which was sent to you earlier by email (it is recommended to use Chrome or Firefox browser when filling in the form).
2. Fill in all the mandatory information on the thesis form.
Manner of publication
2. Click “Save and proceed to confirm”, which opens the draft page. At this point, you can still edit the form by clicking “Edit” from the bottom left-hand corner. When you are sure that you have filled in the correct information, click “Confirm and lock the information”.
N.B. When you confirm and lock the information you have filled in on the thesis form, you leave your thesis for examination and cannot edit it by your own initiative. If your thesis is rejected, you cannot submit the same thesis or a thesis on the same topic for a new examination.
If the thesis is done as a collaborative work: The second student who participated in the thesis receives an e-mail when the so-called responsible student has completed the thesis and publication information on the form. By email, the other student is requested to check and approve the info the first student filled in on the form. The other student will also get to read a copy of the thesis submitted to Turnitinin and can thus make sure that this is the correct file.
► If the other student finds errors in the form or in the thesis file, he / she can return the form to the first student for editing.
► If the information is correct, the other student sends the form and thesis to the supervisor for examination, after which the students can no longer independently change their work.
► After you have locked the information, your supervisor will receive an email from the system and can check the Turnitin report as well as the information you have submitted on the thesis form.
► When your supervisor thinks the thesis is ready for examination, they will send the form to the examiners - you will receive an email when this happens.
► You will receive an email from the system once the examiners have given the evaluation statements, after which you can move to the next part of the process: 5. Commenting on the evaluation statements.
