Progression and upgrade requirements:
Students are expected to take an active part in the PhD seminar series, usually presenting their work at the seminar once each year.
A formal review committee assesses the progress of all MPhil/PhD students on an annual basis.
Students will initially be registered for the MPhil. It is the normal expectation that the decision to upgrade a full-time student from MPhil to PhD will be made either at the first formal review or by the end of the second year of registration, and for part-time students, respectively at the end of the second or third reviews.
The materials submitted for the upgrade review may include examples of written work, such as a draft chapter or literature review, an abstract, and an outline. Supervisors will advise their students as to the content and nature of the material required for the upgrade review.
