Progress Reviews » Review Outcome
After each review, the Review Panel will record the outcome in the online review system. Areas of concern must be noted in the review outcome, including any specific points which must be reconsidered at a subsequent review, as well as any remedial action required of the student and/or the supervisor. Grievances by either the student or the supervisor must be indicated, and if applicable, whether there is any concern about the quality of the supervision.
The Panel then makes a recommendation on whether the progress is satisfactory, marginal or unsatisfactory. If the review is marginal or unsatisfactory, an additional review is scheduled for the next semester, and if necessary, referred to the Higher Degree Committee (HDC).
The review outcome is then viewed and approved by the Postgraduate Coordinator. The candidate will receive an e-mail advising them of the outcome of the review. The candidate can also review the comments and recommendation of the panel by logging into the system and opening the review form.
