We post your thesis using standard first class postage via Royal Mail, as per university guidance. We are unable to provide a courier service, nor do we have financial approval to use the King's preferred courier service suppliers.


If you or your supervisor have concerns about your examiners' location(s) and ability to receive a print copy, then we advise that the examiner(s) print the copy from the electronic PDF and claim any related expenses via the expenses form once the Oral Examination is complete. As with all expense claims, they must keep and submit any receipts.


If your examiners have not requested a print copy of your thesis then we are unable to keep a printed version for you. This is because we have a very limited, open plan office space and cannot guarantee the security of your thesis beyond postage. We ensure your thesis is confidentially shredded should a print copy not be required.
