All HDR students are required to meet three Milestones during their enrolment. The standard requirements for each Milestone are different for students completed a Masters of Research (MRes) in recognition of the Honours work already completed. The Milestone requirements for MRes students are set out below.
Milestone 1 (Candidacy)
The requirements of entry into the Master of Research program are equivalent to the successful completion of Milestone 1, therefore your candidacy is automatically approved upon entry into the course. You will be requested to complete a shortened Milestone 1 Supplementary Application form upon enrolment.
Milestone 2 (Mid-Candidacy Review)
You will need to complete the MRes Milestone 2 (Mid-Candidacy Review) form. This will include details of your completion and dissemination plan. The plan may be in oral format, written format, or a combination of both. The requirements for the plan will differ between Schools so please contact your Director of Graduate Research (DGR) for clarification if required.
Once you have completed the form and met the requirements of your School, forward the form to your School’s DGR who will complete their section and lodge the outcome with the Graduate Research School (GRS). You will receive notification of the outcome of your application for Milestone 2 from the GRS.
Milestone 3 (Pre-Submission)
As you approach thesis submission you will need to complete Milestone 3. This requires you to complete the Milestone 3 form and give an oral presentation on the findings of your research. This presentation will be scheduled within your School.
Once you have completed the student section of the Milestone 3 form please forward the form to your School’s DGR who will complete their section and lodge the outcome with the Graduate Research School. You will receive notification of the outcome of your application for Milestone 3 from the GRS.
