2.6       Monitoring of research degree programmes against indicators and targets

The University uses the following indicators for monitoring research degree programmes:

Submission and qualification[1] rates for postgraduate research degrees

Submission and qualification rate data are considered by the University at various levels. Faculty PGR Directors work with individual schools if a need for improvement is identified.

Annual monitoring statistics

Annual monitoring statistics are scrutinised by schools as part of the Education Action Plan (EAP) process.


[1] The term ‘qualification rate’ (also known as ‘completion rate’) refers to the length of time it takes from the date of registration on a research degree programme for a student to be awarded the qualification by the University Research Degrees Examination Board.
