Confirmation of Candidature
All HDR candidates are admitted on a provisional candidature basis and must satisfy the requirements for transferring to full candidature, which is referred to as 'confirmation'. HDR candidates in Business and Law, who commence prior to August 2015, have the option of completing either the original Faculty HDR confirmation process or the amended process introduced for candidates commencing from August 2015 onward. All candidates who commence from August 2015 will complete the amended confirmation process.
Details of the Deakin University Guidelines for Confirmation, including the compulsory Research Integrity training component, are available on the Current Research Students website.
