Candidature Support Supervisor/s Other research students Research and discipline communities, both inside and outside the university Literature Conferences, workshops and seminars University researcher development programs
Features of the doctoral framework 3 formal stages: each stage marked by explicit development of knowledge and research practice Subjects and modules integrated throughout the candidature whenever appropriate Doctoral study plan (DSP) – tool for planning, monitoring and reviewing each candidate’s progress Use of supervisory panels
Stages: purpose and end point Stage 1 – confirmation of candidature Stage 2 – confirmation of advanced progress Stage 3 – confirmation of readiness to submit thesis
