Progress Reviews » Review Outcome

After each review, the Review Panel will record the review outcome on the online form in the Graduate Research Information System (GRIS). In all reviews, regardless of the outcome, the Panel, together with the candidate and the supervisor(s), must set milestones for the next review and these will be used to assess progress in the program. Areas of concern must also 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 candidate and/or the supervisor. Grievances by either the candidate 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, and if necessary, referred to the Higher Degree Committee (HDC).  All review outcomes are reviewed and published by the Postgraduate Coordinator.

The candidate will receive an automated e-mail advising them of the outcome of the review. The candidate can also review the comments and recommendation of the panel and/or Postgraduate Coordinator by logging into GRIS

HDR candidates should refer to the Progress Review and Confirmation of Research Candidatures Procedure and the section on Progress Reviews on the Graduate Research School website for more detailed information.
