Completing your Candidature Engagement Form

The Candidature Engagement Form is an important document which is completed within the first month of your candidature. You will receive a link to your Candidature Engagement Form and information on how to complete it, as part of your Welcome to Deakin email.

*If you received an offer letter before Monday 4 November 2019, you must upload the completed form into your Individual Learning Plan (ILP).

The form provides a list of important items for discussion between yourself and your supervisory team to ensure that certain requirements pertaining to your research project have been discussed and understood at the commencement of your candidature. Items listed for discussion include:

  • Engagement with your supervisory team and HDR support staff
  • Planning of candidature objectives and key milestones
  • Research conduct
  • Intellectual property
  • Resources and facilities available to support your candidature

Completing the Candidature Engagement Form is compulsory for Deakin research degree students.
