Attendance and Performance
- Regular contact with their supervisors is a requirement for all candidates. In order to monitor this contact and keep track of the study progress, candidates are required to submit a progress report to the Graduate School every 6 months starting from their commencement of studies. Supervisors shall also provide an assessment of the candidate’s performance and submit the report to the Graduate School via the Bi-annual Progress Report System.
- If a candidate fails to satisfy the requirements under the above section, or make satisfactory progress, the supervisor(s) shall advise the candidate in writing. A copy of the letter shall be sent to the Graduate School for record. If the candidate is a studentship recipient, upon the recommendation of the supervisor(s) and the Department Head, the studentship may be terminated.
- If the candidate continues not to satisfy the requirements of attendance and performance, he/she may, after due warning, be dismissed from the University.
- A candidate may notify the Graduate School in writing of any illness or other special circumstances which may have prevented him/her from satisfying the requirements under sections 14.1 and 14.2 of the General Regulations or may have adversely affected his/her performance and which he/she might like to be taken into account before the Graduate School makes a recommendation in terms of section 14.3 of the General Regulations.
