Required Forms Checklist
Interior Design

Below are the administrative processes that the Department of Interior Design follows under the Faculty of Graduate Studies requirements as well as the unit’s approved supplemental regulations. The graduate student and their Advisor are responsible for ensuring that the required forms are completed and submitted to the Student Service Office (201 Russell Bldg). A copy* is placed in student’s file and forwarded to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.


This form is designed to provide a framework for discussion between advisors and graduate students registered in a thesis or practicum program and to establish guidelines to govern their relationship. This document must be completed prior to the commencement of any research and no later than the submission of the first Progress Report for the Student.

PROPOSAL submitted to Student Advisory Assistant for Graduate Proposal Committee to review**
Practicum project proposals are developed under the guidance of the student’s assigned academic advisor. Each proposal should be read and approved for submission by the advisor prior to the published submission dates. Please review Information on proposal submission deadlines and proposals guidelines on the department web page.

To be submitted prior or by intermediate presentation** – Graduate Studies has final approval of examination committee. In the majority of cases all members of the examining committee must hold at least a Master’s degree or equivalent. Should the external be from outside the University of Manitoba the Faculty of Graduate Studies requires a CV/resume indicating their professional and academic background. If an external does not hold a Master degree a letter must be submitted with the examiner’s form to Graduate Studies justifying the importance of their contribution to the committee.

Examining Committee: The Academic Adviser will recommend a suggested thesis/practicum examining committee to the Department Head for approval, which shall then be reported to the Faculty of Graduate Studies Office on the “Master’s Thesis/Practicum Title and Appointment of Examiners” form. The committee must consist of a minimum of three examiners. At least two examiners must be members of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. One examiner must hold a primary appointment from within the major department and one examiner must be external to the department. All examiners must be deemed qualified by the Department Head and willing to serve.
Note: The External Examiner should be considered arm’s length to the department. While the definition of “arm’s length” is left to the discretion of the department, be advised that justification may be required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies for this selection".

When the student has been approved by their advisor to move forward with their presentation, they are required to complete and submit the presentation booking form to the Student Advisory Assistant in 201 Russell Building. The students must identify the level of the presentation on the form. Once the student has been approved for their final presentation this form will be used to create the Final Report form* that goes to Graduate Studies. Please ensure that all information is correct and the title is confirmed.

Faculty of Graduate Studies Submission Dates can be found in Section 14 of the annual Academic Calendar. Faculty of Graduate Studies submission requirements can be found on Thesis/Practicum page. The Interior Design program requires students to submit a departmental hard bound copy of their final document or a receipt that they have ordered the copy at the time of the final submission date to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. They will not have met their degree requirements if this is not submitted.

Once a full committee has been struck the Faculty of Graduate Studies requires all member signatures on the form. The committee may also consider signing-off on a similar form after each meeting should they be unable to meet at the time of the yearly meeting.
