Monitoring Research Study Progress

All RPg students will be assessed by their academic departments annually. Each RPg student is required to submit a progress report and will be allowed to proceed on with his/her studies subject to satisfactory performance as judged by D/SRC.

The reporting requirements will be announced at the appropriate time in each academic year.

If an RPg student fails to submit his/her progress report by the stipulated deadline, the D/SRC shall convene a meeting to consider whether he/she should be de-registered as a result of unsatisfactory progress.

The D/SRC shall, on receipt of the report, evaluate and assess the progress of the RPg student. In the event that an RPg student’s progress is unsatisfactory, the D/SRC is required to give details of the proposed remedial action and consider carefully whether the student should be provided with stipend and/or cash awards for the following 12 months. The case, together with the D/SRC’s recommendations, shall be submitted to the GSB Chair for decision. An RPg student may be deregistered if his/her progress is rated unsatisfactory for two consecutive times.
