The SAB is the Subject Area Board for your area of study. It is made up of academics within your Faculty who scrutinise the RD1 Form and check the examiners are appropriate and suitable for your Oral Examination and completion of the Examiner Reports.

The Subject Area Board advise on the expertise and suitability of the examiner nominees and check any potential conflicts of interest the supervisor, or you as the candidate, might have with the nominees. This is an important part of quality assurance and ensuring the integrity of your award; it also means you can be certain of the high standards to which King's adheres when awarding a research degree. A list of faculty and individual SABs is available online.


Important to know: we cannot process an RD1 Form without the SAB field being completed.
