To request a variation to your candidature please complete the relevant variation form from the below list and obtain your Principal Supervisor's approval prior to submitting to Graduate Research.
Most variations must be received at Graduate Research at least two weeks prior to the census dates of 31 March (for semester 1) and 31 August (for semester 2) in order for them to take effect that semester. Once a variation form has been processed by Graduate Research, we will notify you and your supervisors via email. In the instances of a leave of absence, or transfer of program, a letter will also be posted. Please ensure your contact details are correct in myHub.
Further information on each candidature variation can be found at the relevant FAQ.
Candidates are required to complete a Supervisory Expectations Document in consultation with their supervisors within the first six months of candidature.
In setting the supervisory expectations, it is advisable to use the supplementary Paired Questions Task sheet, which lists a number of components of the supervisor-candidate relationship, and the degree to which each party is responsible. It is strongly recommended that the supervisor(s) and candidate complete the paired questions task independently and then meet to discuss the responses.
Candidates are encouraged to keep a record of all meetings with their supervisors. These may be in the form of brief notes and should be circulated to all supervisors (present at the meeting or not) to keep all up to date with progress. A focus on actions (with timeframes) is also recommended. A meeting log template has been prepared for such a purpose.
A range of other student policies exist that also relate to research higher degree students. For more information see the policy library.
