Research students and their supervisors are required to submit
progress reports on the candidates' studies once every six months.
One month before the end of
the probationary period (see table below), research students and
their supervisors should submit reports to the Faculty
Higher Degrees Committee via the Departmental
Research Postgraduate Committee,
for confirmation of candidature, transfer
of candidate (MPhil to
PhD, and/or between full-time and part-time status) or an extension
of the probationary period.
The Graduate School will send out automatic email reminders to
research students and their supervisors one month before the report
due date. The progress report form can then be completed and submitted
via HKU Portal.
