My viva was beginning of July 2011 and my corrections were submitted 25th July 2011. I then had an agonising wait for the internal to review my corrections and sign them off. I heard officially that all was rubber stamped on the 12th or 15th September 2012. My final 'formally' bound thesis was submitted on graduation day mid October 2011. I was only then that I felt completely free of my PhD and may the celebrations begin, woohoo! It is a long road to get that final tick in a box but it all comes to those who patiently wait.
AAagh this is something I didn't even think much about.
I'm in a bit of a predicament. Got a post doc job, all fine til HR found out I don't actually have a PhD yet and bumped my down to RA salary. They say I NEED to have PhD within 3 months of the post starting. This will be 4th April and unless I get the minorest of minor corrections I can't see that happening, especially if internals sit on the corrections for weeks.
