Graduate (GSO) forms are moving online

GSO forms are moving online from Hilary term 2020. 

Ten of the current Graduate (GSO) forms will be replaced with online applications, digitised approvals and workflows, making life easier for students, academics and administrative staff alike. 

By using this user-friendly and fully secure system, graduate students will be able to complete and track the progress of applications easily and efficiently.  All applications will be stored in one place, and applications can be accessed and approved wherever you are, as long as you have web access, via eVision or Student Self Service. 

The move online will reduce paper-based communication, photocopying and printing, and applications will be easier to track.  The overall processing time will also be reduced through online workflow improvements. 

The ten forms moving online:

  • GSO.2b: Defer Transfer of Status
  • GSO.3: Appointment of examiners
  • GSO.3c: Dispensation from consultation of the thesis
  • GSO.4: Change of mode of study
  • GSO.6: Change of title
  • GSO.8: Dispensation from residence
  • GSO.14b: Defer Confirmation of Status
  • GSO.15: Extension of time
  • GSO.27: Appointment of examiners - Law
  • GSO.29: Withdrawal

How will I access my on-course applications?
Graduate students will access the forms by using an updated web link on the Graduate (GSO) forms webpage, or in the My Student Record section of Student Self Service for students.  Your student number (and any other pre-populated details) will already be pre-populated into all applications in the new system.

When is ‘go live’?
The ten forms will be available online before the start of Hilary term 2020. Look out for more information around the launch date.
