Research Student Routine Progress Review
The Postgraduate Research School coordinates ongoing monitoring, assessment and progression of research students to ensure that every student receives appropriate support throughout their studies and to assess whether they are on track to successfully complete their thesis by the end of their period of supervised study (the final date of submission). The same mechanisms are used to monitor the development and training of every research student across the university.
The routine progress reviews are undertaken at six monthly intervals and follow the calendar year, rather than the start date of the student's programme of study. For example, routine progress review forms are issued in April and October each year and are a retrospective report of the student's progress over the last six months of supervised study.
