Postgraduate research milestones are used to ensure you're making sufficient progress
during your studies and to keep you on track to submit within the appropriate period. PGR
supervisors will talk through the relevant milestones during supervisory meetings, and you
should refer to them on a regular basis.
If you first registered prior to October 2017, you should discuss appropriate milestones
with your supervisor.
Select the relevant milestone by choosing the year you started your course, your course
subject and qualification level.
At each research student progress board, progress will be considered against the relevant
milestones for the correct course and entry year.
If you wish to submit an extenuating circumstances claim there are guidelines on how to make a formal submission to your Supervisory Panel and Research Students’ Progress Board. You can also inform your supervisor about any extenuating circumstances you experience during the course of your studies.
