Annual Review Processes

 

Annual Review

The University requires that all PGR students have an annual formal review of progress. This Departmental review process takes place in early October and is followed up by the completion of the formal RIS review form.

How it works:

  • Your primary supervisor will arrange a suitable time to meet with you and your secondary supervisor to discuss your progress with your thesis and the Doctoral Development Programme during the preceding academic year and your training needs for the coming academic year
  • Before the meeting you should prepare your section of the annual review form and a provisional TNA form
  • After the meeting you should submit your final TNA form and the annual review form to the Postgraduate Support Manager
  • TNA forms must be submitted hardcopy with the signatures of both supervisors
  • Annual review forms can be submitted electronically by you or your supervisor (please copy your supervisor into your email)
  • You will also have the opportunity to provide feedback on your supervision
  • The deadline for submission of TNA forms and annual review forms is 5pm, Friday 13 October 2017
  • This information will be used to complete the on-line RIS annual review form later in October.

 

Bi-Annual Review

The Departmental bi-annual review process takes place in March/April of each year.

How it works:

  • After the meeting the final version of the bi-annual review form should be submitted to the Postgraduate Support Manager
