The process for Australian doctoral candidates is different from Europe and elsewhere. Due mainly to geographic isolation, there is no “viva voce” where external examiners are invited to interrogate the candidate in person. Rather, there is a public seminar followed by a meeting with the university thesis committee. Once recommended changes to the thesis have been made, it it sent to the external examiners for review. So if you’ve recently received my thesis in your inbox, then thanks in advance!
