Confirming your Candidature

You should note that for the first 12 months of your doctoral research, your candidature is conditional.

Your doctoral candidature will only be confirmed if, at the end of your first year of research, the following conditions have been met:

  • The Research Student Support Team or Medical Sciences Graduate School is in receipt of your signed Learning Agreement.
  • You have submitted a Project Approval application using ePortfolio, which has been approved by the Dean of Postgraduate Studies. Progression on your programme is dependent upon the acceptance of the project proposal.
