What are Research Progress Reviews?

Progress Reviews are an opportunity for you, your supervisor/s and your School to:

  • take stock of how your project has gone over the past year
  • review all aspects of your candidature
  • develop a plan of action for the next year.

There are great resources available regarding progress reviews at UNSW. The Postgraduate Research Handbook includes a detailed summary of the Progress Review process.

The GRS will also be running a Research Progress Review seminar on 26 April.


Make the most of your Reviews!

A Progress Review is designed to be a positive and productive experience. See it as an opportunity not only to review and get feedback on the progress of your project but also to manage your research,  plan your thesis and ensure that you make the most of your time at UNSW.
