Research Postgraduate Student Handbook (2021/22)
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 full D/SRC shall 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 his/her progress is unsatisfactory, the case together with the D/SRC’s recommendations shall be submitted to the FRC/SB for information.
