HDR progress reviews

The UQ Graduate School monitors the progression and development of all PhD and MPhil candidates via an assessment framework of ‘progress reviews’.

This approach aims to:

  • Monitor candidates' progression and development at specific points of candidature
  • Identify any issues that impact progression and facilitate improvements
  • Facilitate candidates receiving feedback from academics who are not members of the advisory team
  • Record any issues/concerns

Visit the Graduate School website for an overview of the progress review framework
