Academic Progression

Information for:

Research students

For students enrolled in a research program (PhD, Masters by Research or MPhil).

Satisfactory academic progress is monitored within your School and recorded in your Annual Progress Review. It is important to ensure that you undertake one Annual Progress Review each academic year within your School. If you are unsure if you have undertaken an Annual progress review, you should discuss this with your supervisor.

Referral or probation

For students who's academic standing is 'referral' or 'probation'.

Academic Progress Intervention Strategy

If your academic standing is 'referral' or 'probation' the University is concerned about your academic progress.

You must consult your Faculty Program/Academic Advisor and an International Student Advisor to discuss your academic progress, plans for improving results, and future enrolment options.

Your Faculty Program/Academic Advisor will help you plan your course program and suggest subjects to enrol in for your course. After seeing your Academic Advisor, and prior to the census date of the up-coming semester, make an appointment to see an International Student Advisor.

You should not finalise your enrolment without contacting your Academic Advisor. Please refer to Academic Standing for more details.
