Project aims and objectives
To provide an online facility for the tracking of postgraduate research (PGR) student progress. The system will deliver a consistent approach to the management of PGR students, enable improved reporting and ensure an enhanced experience for the students themselves. The system will interact with the research students and their supervisors, as well as research student administrators.
Phase 1 provided the facility for the online recording of meetings between students and their supervisors/mentors. Phase 1 went live in all five colleges for new MPhil and PhD students in September 2010. The first part of Phase 2 is to deliver My PGR to all PGR students on all PGR programmes from September 2011. The project will then move on to deliver online ad-hoc processes i.e. requests for interruptions, change in mode of attendance, change in supervisor etc before delivering the examination process online from nomination of examiners through to final award.
