3.11 Progress Review
3.11 Mid-candidature review
From 1 January 2015, all milestones will be considered formal requirements, not just confirmation, as per the Graduate Research Progress Management Procedures coming into effect from this date.
Any student whose Mid Candidature Review is held on or after 1 January 2015 will be subject to the new Procedures, including the new panel constitution and formal hurdle requirement.
A formal hurdle requirement means that the student must satisfactorily achieve the requirements of the milestone in order to remain enrolled. A failure to meet the requirements of a milestone means that the student is deemed to be making unsatisfactory progress, in line with the Graduate Research Progress Management Procedures.
Students are to refer to the Graduate Research Progress Management Procedures for details on the requirements of the Mid Candidature Review. Some students are exempt from undertaking this review – please refer to Section 1 of the Procedures for details.

Doctoral students who commence their course of study on or after 1 January 2015 will be required to undertake a Progress Review rather than Mid Candidature Review at 24 months equivalent full-time.
Please note: Professional doctoral students will continue to undertake a Mid Candidature Review irrespective of the commencement date of their course of study.
Professional doctoral students are to refer to Section 1 of the Procedures for details.
Faculties may have their own specific requirements for this review, please refer to Appendix J
