The Oxford Materials Project Management Scheme for research students

This scheme enables and encourages students to take responsibility for the successful progress and outcome of their research by prompting them to assess expectations and progress throughout the duration of the DPhil. The following forms must be completed by each student in consultation with their supervisor, at approximately six-monthly intervals.  The forms are then uploaded to your folder on the Materials: PGR Progression WebLearn site. The deadlines for submission are given in the 'timelines' for each of our research degree programmes which are available on the same WebLearn site.
