Length of Registration

Most research students register and pay fees for three years (full time) or six years (part time) and receive supervision from their Supervisor during this period.

The fourth year (or equivalent for part time students) is  thesis pending period (sometimes referred to as a writing-up period). 

Thesis-Pending Period

Students normally enter their thesis-pending period (or writing-up period) at the end of their third year of registration as a full time student (or equivalent period of time for a part time student). Research students who wish to enter the thesis-pending period before this time, will only be able to do so with the permission of their Supervisor and if the Supervisor has seen a substantial draft of the thesis. 

Interrupting Studies

Students who wish to voluntarily interrupt their studies must contact their Supervisor in the first instance. Students will need to complete a request to interrupt study form for the University, which for International students will include speaking to the International Office and gaining their signature on the form.

When completed, the request to interrupt study form should be submitted to Jo Pullen who can obtain Head of School and any other School signatures as required. 

All voluntarily interruption requests must be accompanied by supporting documentation. 

Withdrawal from Studies

Students who wish to withdraw from their studies must contact their Supervisor in the first instance. Students will need to complete a Notification of Withdrawal form for the University.

When completed, the withdrawal form should be submitted to Jo Pullen.
