From iSchool Current Students

Jump to: navigation, search

Students registered from the 01.08.2012 onwards are expected to submit additional information at the progress review closest to their 24th month of registration (48th month for part time students) to ensure they are on track to submit within the normal period of study (3 years for full time students, 6 years for part-time students). This information comprises:

  1. The submission of the thesis structure with an indicative content for each chapter and an outline of the work completed so far and of the work to be carried out towards the submission of the thesis;
  2. A detailed timetable for the work to be carried out towards the submission of the thesis.


In addition, students must present their research to their research group.
At this review, the supervisor(s) must indicate whether:

  1. the student is on target to submit the thesis within the normal period of registration of 3 years (6 years for part time students) with no changes to the plan;
  2. the student is on target to submit the thesis within the normal period of registration of 3 years (6 years for part time students), provided revisions to the plan specified by the supervisor are made;
  3. the student is unlikely to submit the thesis within the normal period of registration of 3 years (6 years for part time students), but likely to submit it within the time limit of 4 years (8 years for part-time students); in such cases, a revised plan of work towards submission must be provided by the student and agreed with the supervisor;
  4. the student is unlikely to submit the thesis within the time limit of 4 years (8 years for part-time students); in such cases, normally the recommendation should be that a submission for an MPhil is made and revisions to the plan must be recommended. Subsequent progress review reports must specify if any changes to progress and to the plans have occurred and if any further action needs to be taken. All progress review reports will be reviewed by the PGR Administrator and PGR Tutor. In cases deemed necessary this will be followed up by a meeting between the student, the supervisory team, the PGR Tutor and the Director of Research or the Head of School.
