Review Process

Your research proposal will be reviewed by your advisory panel and approved by your Graduate Research Coordinator. The specific details your advisory panel are asked to address are available here.

Your proposal may be approved without changes or revisions may be required. If these revisions are substantial, you may need to resubmit your proposal for a second round review by your advisory panel.

Once your proposal has been approved by your advisory panel and Graduate Research Coordinator, you will submit your approved proposal to the Graduate Research School. Please ensure that you allow sufficient time for your proposal to be reviewed to ensure your proposal is received by your research proposal milestone due date.

Once your approved research proposal has been received by the Graduate Research School, you, your co-ordinating supervisor and your Graduate Research Coordinator will be notified by email that your research proposal milestone has been achieved.

Please contact your School's GRC well ahead of your submission deadline to ascertain your School's specific Procedures.



When your school approves your research proposal they are confirming:

Submission to the GRS

Please attach a research proposal coversheet to your proposal and ensure your Co-ordinating Supervisor and Graduate Research Coordinator have signed the coversheet. Electronic signatures are accepted.

Submit a clear scanned electronic copy of the approved version of both the proposal and coversheet to [email protected].
