Allocation of projects and supervisors to students

The  process by which students are allocated to projects and supervisors should be  made clear to all applicants through the school website or in printed form. The  approaches will vary across schools depending on their resources. Students  would be normally required to indicate preferences for a particular  project/supervisor; the projects are then allocated on the basis of the students’  preferences, students’ marks, and resources required to successfully complete the  project.

For the  Minor Thesis enrolment, the School/Department’s Research Degrees Committee (or  equivalent) will approve the supervisor and thesis topic. The academic/main supervisor  requires level 1 supervision training through MIGR from 2015 (Monash University  Institute of Graduate Research), supervision and research experience.
