3.12 Final Review

3.12 Pre-submission seminar

From 1 January 2015, all  milestones will be considered formal hurdle requirements, not just  confirmation, as per the Graduate  Research Progress Management Procedures coming into effect from that date.

Any student whose Pre-Submission Seminar 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,  as per the Graduate  Research Progress Management Procedures.

Students are to refer to the Graduate  Research Progress Management Procedures for details on the requirements  of the Pre-Submission Seminar. Some students are exempt from undertaking this  review – please refer to Section 1 of the Procedures for details.

Please note: Students are required to complete all program  requirements prior to the Pre-Submission Seminar. See the Monash Doctoral  Program website for more details.

Doctoral students who  commence their course of study on or after 1 January 2015 will be required to  undertake a Final Review rather than Pre-Submission Seminar at 36 months  equivalent full-time.

  • Students are required to  complete all program requirements prior to the Final Review. See the Monash  Doctoral Program website for more details.
  • Professional doctoral students will continue to undertake the  Pre-Submission Seminar irrespective of the commencement date of their course of  study.
  • Professional doctoral students are to refer to Section 1 of the Procedures for details
