Research progression milestones

The research progression milestone process is designed to help you keep on track toward successfully completing your studies within 3-4 years. It provides you with the opportunity to discuss your research and training needs with others, and receive feedback and guidance throughout your candidature.

Within the first three months of commencing you will need to set up your Milestone Review Panel. This panel will oversee your progress and provide you with feedback and guidance on your research and skills training needs throughout your candidature. Milestone review forms can be found here (for current students only).
