Qualifying/Annual Report Submission

A qualifying report should include a survey of the relevant literature, an identification of a specific research topic, the research methodology and a discussion on possible outcomes.

Students should submit three copies of the qualifying report to their research supervisors within the specified qualifying period. The Qualifying Panel will assess the student’s suitability to continue his or her studies on the basis of the qualifying report, coursework results and any other assessment as considered appropriate by the Panel. The Panel’s recommendations will be forwarded to the Department/School for approval.

After the qualifying period, students must submit progress reports (typed and in English) on an annual basis until they have submitted the final version of their thesis for oral examination and completed any other academic requirements.

Students should submit three copies of the annual progress report to their research supervisors for forwarding to the Qualifying Panel for assessment. On the basis of the annual progress report, the Qualifying Panel should make a recommendation regarding the student’s suitability to continue his or her studies for approval by the Department/School.
