If you have received notification from your Faculty that a PSP meeting has been scheduled, please contact the DUSA Student Advocacy and Support Service for free and confidential advice and support around this process.
PSPs are part of Deakin University’s process for supporting HDR candidates who are ‘not making satisfactory progress’ in their research studies and who are at risk of not completing their degree within the prescribed time limit.
A PSP will be put in place if recommended by your supervision team or a senior staff in the school or faculty. PSP’s can in some instances be requested by a student. The support panel process is designed to provide you with extra support and guidance so you can progress with your research studies. Further details regarding the PSP process can be found via the Higher Degrees by Research Progress Procedure.
