Annual progress report
From iSchool Current Students
Progress is more formally recorded on two occasions during the year. The School has its own internal 6-monthly Progress Reports, which are completed in January/February of each year, and Research and Innovation Services collate Annual Progress Reports in July/August of each year.
Annual Progress Reports are required by RIS towards the end of each academic year.
This report, together with the supervision record forms completed in the year and the 6 monthly progress reports will be used by the supervisory team to inform their response on the Annual Progress Report form and reviewed by the School PGR Sub-Committee. Subsequently, the Head of School countersigns the Annual Progress Reports, recommending continuation of registration or not, depending upon the outcome of discussions. The student must also sign the report to indicate agreement with the content. The Annual Progress Reports containing the recommendations are then forwarded to Research and Innovation Services.
The Annual Progress Report confirms whether your progress is excellent, satisfactory or unsatisfactory. It is expected that a large majority of students will be confirmed as making satisfactory progress. Where students are deemed to be making unsatisfactory progress, an action plan will be agreed upon by the School and R&IS. If progress continues to be unsatisfactory, the case will normally be reviewed under Student Progress Regulations.
