You need to formally apply to your school to have your progress reviewed for each milestone. For each milestone there is an application form which you will need to complete and submit to your supervisor along with the required supporting documentation to commence the milestone review process within your school. You will also need to provide an oral presentation on your progress for each milestone review.
Please note that for milestone information relating to the unique MRes program, please refer to the MRes page.
For more information see:
- Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Student Progression Policy
- Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Student Progression Procedures
On receipt of your official notification of enrolment, you will be considered a provisional candidate until your application for Milestone 1 is approved by your School and Director of Graduate Research for your school. The Graduate Research School will notify you once your Milestone 1 application has been approved by your Faculty Graduate Studies Committee.
Data collection (e.g. surveys, questionnaires or interviews, etc.) must not be conducted by provisional candidates.
Milestone 2 provides you with the opportunity to reflect on the progress made in your research project and finalise a strategy for the timely completion and dissemination of research findings.
