If you are due to submit your thesis, (or resubmit to complete), by the end of March - you need to submit your electronic version by 5pm on Thursday 29th March.
The submission portal will be open beyond that, but there will be no-one to help if anything goes wrong!
So long as the thesis is submitted electronically on time, the Graduate Office will accept hard copies of the thesis (where required) in the first week of April (ie after the bank holidays) and the submission will count as on time.

The Library is pleased to announce the launch of Order a Book Service to support students when they can’t get the books they need for their studies.
If the Library doesn’t hold a copy of the book needed, the student can fill in the Order a book form and the Library will get it for them.
The service launches week commencing 19th February 2018 and will run until further notice.
Please note: the service will provide the books in electronic format; in the event this cannot be obtained a print version will be sought.
More details can be found here: http://www.library.manchester.ac.uk/using-the-library/students/books-and-resources/order-a-book/
This service will be particularly useful to researchers, postgraduate students and third year students undertaking dissertation/project work. With that in mind, we would be grateful if you could mention the service at relevant meetings/forums.
If you have any queries or feedback on the service then please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please note my working days are Wednesday-Thursday
