Postgraduate research progress

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.
