 “Overtime” is the term used to identify a candidate who is enrolled but has not submitted a thesis within the
 prescribed time limits as determined in Rule 10: Degree of Doctor by Research and Rule 11: Degree of Master by
 Research.
 Extract from the Rules:
 4.        ENROLMENT AND DURATION OF STUDY
 (c)(ii)   A candidate failing to submit a thesis for examination within the prescribed time limits shall be identified as
           Overtime. The candidate shall also be placed on “Conditional status” and will be allowed the equivalent of
           a further six months of full-time enrolment in which to submit the thesis. Further extensions of enrolment
           require the written support of the Head of Enrolling Area and, upon the recommendation of the Faculty
           Graduate Studies Committee, the approval of the University Graduate Studies Committee. If the
           University Graduate Studies Committee does not approve such an extension the candidate’s enrolment
           will be terminated. When a candidate identified as Overtime submits a thesis, the candidate’s enrolment
           status shall be amended to Under Examination.
