- Assessment Procedures
Before commencing their thesis research, graduate students must make an oral defence of their thesis proposal before a thesis advisory committee. At the same time students must present a draft of their Ethics Proposal for consideration.
The proposal (and associated ethics application) must be approved before research can be undertaken. All staff and graduate students are encouraged to attend these presentations.
All students (including those who are planning to apply to transfer to the MPsych/PhD) are required to defend their thesis proposals during their first year of candidature.
Students wanting to apply to transfer to the MPsych/PhD must complete the Research Proposal requirements to be eligible to transfer.
Information regarding assessment procedures, including hurdle requirements, the submission process and late penalties can be found within the Student Manual.
