Progress Support Panels

Progress Support Panels

Deakin University has a commitment to identifying and assisting candidates who are not making satisfactory progress in their research studies and who are at risk of not completing their degree within the prescribed time limit. A Progress Support Panel (PSP) is called when progress is not evident. It is a supportive process initiated either by supervisors or the Faculty HDR Coordinator and in some instances by students themselves. Students on PSP are entitled to support from a DUSA representative. PSP's usually last up to three months. If exclusion is recommended there is an appeals process available

Full details on the University guidelines and processes are included in the Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Academic Progress Procedure

Potential PSP candidates will be contacted by the Faculty to set up an initial meeting where progress is discussed, if at that meeting it is deemed appropriate, further meetings will be scheduled. At each monthly meeting, tasks and timelines will be established. It is important that these are achieved to ensure progress.
