To monitor progress throughout your research higher degree (RHD), we use candidature milestones. 

They are used to assess your attributes and achievements at the following stages of your RHD:

  • confirmation (beginning)
  • mid-candidature review (middle)
  • thesis review (end).

Due dates for your milestones are in mySI-net (Higher Degree Research > Candidature). For information surrounding the milestone process and other important information relating to your RhD study, please view the RhD Handbook (docx, 678KB).
