have been updated to clarify that MoEYS regulations require that a student
writing their Masterís Research Paper, thesis or dissertation must register and
pay the requisite fees for each and every term (including any term IIIs)
between completing their coursework and submitting the final† product. This is to indicate their continuing
commitment to completing their degree: whilst they can take a Leave of Absence

working on the research and/or its writing up.

subsequent research-based components of Doctoral programmes are recorded as
Pass/Fail in studentsí transcripts.
