- Milestone 3: Thesis review
- Current students
- Postgraduate research students
The aim of this milestone is to provide constructive feedback to help the candidate to a successful completion.
It is assumed that the student has completed the first draft of their thesis and is now working to refine and prepare their thesis for submission.
At this milestone, the scope, originality and quality of the thesis should be assessed to identify any major concerns that need attention before submission. At the end of this review, the School should be assured that the thesis will be ready for assessment by the expected date, or determine a new submission date. If there are any differences of opinion between the candidate and the advisory team about the readiness of the thesis for assessment, this is the opportunity to raise concerns. Lastly, it is important that the candidate has established a feasible plan of action for completion within the set timeframes.
Assessment process, recommendations.

Application submission – competitive research grants
Applications for external competitive research grants from UQ researchers are submitted through the Research Office in UQ Research and Innovation (UQ R&I). With the exception of major funding agency grant rounds, such as Australian Research Council (ARC) and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), draft applications should be submitted to the Research Office (contacts available here ) at least 10 working days before the external funding body closing date.
The internal submission timeframe allows for central checking of core eligibility and compliance, and for required institutional certifications and submission to be arranged. Also, where relevant to the scheme, efforts will be made by the Research Office team to provide any other grantsmanship suggestions and feedback that may add value to the proposal.
Your application must be accompanied by a completed and signed UQ Funding Application Coversheet (UQ FAC) (DOTX, 68.5 KB) . This requirement is formalised in the University’s policy on the Administration of Research Funding [4.10.01] . Where relevant to the funding scheme in question, a completed UQ Costing and Pricing Tool should also be included with the internal submission.
While some funding bodies allow or even mandate direct online submission of proposals, applicants are still required to provide formal notification of the submission to the Research Office. For staff, notification involves providing the Grants Officer with the final submission version of the application and a completed and signed UQ FAC. No prior commitment, oral or written, may be entered into by Schools/Centres/Institutes or individual staff on behalf of the University.
HDR students applying for external scholarships must notify the UQ Graduate School of submission.
Proposal submission - contract research
A completed and signed UQ Funding Application Coversheet (DOTX, 68.5 KB) and a completed UQ Costing and Pricing Tool are required to accompany contract research proposals or executed research-industry contracts for research projects. Research Partnerships Managers are able to assist researchers with queries related to intellectual property and have a vital role throughout the contract negotiation process.
The following resources will help you prepare your grant proposal:
- Budget preparation

- Creating a data management plan
- Creating a project record
- Complying with policy and requirements
- Accessing and using the storage
- Working with collaborators
- If you are leaving UQ
- Other questions
As an HDR student, you can create a project record on UQRDM to store and manage your research data. Make sure you:
1. login using your UQ student username (sXXXXX) and password
2. select " This project is a higher degree by research (HDR) project " on the form
3. add your Principal Advisor as the Project Lead
4. add your UQ staff credential (if you have one) to the project record as a "Collaborator".
Your supervisor will then need to Approve the project record.
Detailed instructions can be found in Setting up your project .
Activating access to storage for HDR students
When your project record is complete you will receive an email to activate access to your storage. Click on the link in the email.
If you have also added your Staff login credentials in the project record as a collaborator:
1. You will receive Two (2) separate activation emails. One for each login. Activate them both separately as follows.
2. Click on the link in the email sent to your student account , when prompted, login to UQRDM using your student ID to activate the access. Logout from UQRDM.
3. Click on the link in the email sent to your staff account , when prompted, login to UQRDM using your staff ID to activate the access.
By correctly activating both your student ID and staff ID you will be able to access your storage from anywhere, regardless of which login you use.
Structuring your data folders and collections
Before creating a folder structure in your UQRDM storage allocation, discuss the best approach for the folder structure with your supervisor and other collaborators. A well thought out and consistent folder and file structure can improve the efficiency of your work.
There are plenty of ways to get help on setting up access to your storage.
1. You will receive an email advising you that your storage is ready. The email includes instructions on how to access your storage folders for your UQRDM project.
2. Use the Accessing the Storage instructions . This will guide you on where you go to save your documents, set up folders, and store your data.
3. Your UQRDM Project Record also contains instructions on how to access and use your storage.
You can create folders and upload/save documents to your UQRDM storage in the same way you would add them to any other file directory. If you have questions check out our FAQ's for detailed help.
Access your storage for the UQ Research Data Manager (YouTube, 3m30s)
Upload your Research Progress Report documents in your UQRDM project storage so that your Principal Advisor can access.
1. Check your Supervisor has been added as "Project Lead" in your UQRDM project record. This gives them access to all files saved for this project.
2. Complete your Research Progress Report.
3. Save it to your R: drive or save it via cloud.rdm.uq.edu.au. Make sure you save it to the correct project if you have more than one.
Done! Your supervisor will now be able to access that document from wherever they are, and review it for you.
HDR candidate progression at UQ is supported by a sequence of activities that include 3 Progress Reviews .
In preparation for the Progress Reviews, students are required:
1. to create a folder with the name Progress Reviews in your UQRDM research project storage,
2. to put the materials that only needed for review in the folder, and
3. to share the folder with external reviewers so that they can access the materials.
For materials required for Progress Reviews, please check with your school.
For how to share the folder with the external reviewers, please read the instructions .
As you begin your HDR project, you will need to discuss with your supervisor the best way to plan and manage your data. An ideal way to do this is to create a data management plan .
UQRDM is an easy to use tool that captures all the information you need for a data management plan, and allows you to download and submit this to a funding body.
When you have created your project record, you will have access to additional fields that capture relevant information for a data management plan. Complete as many of the fields that are relevant to your project, and save them in the project record. These will form the basis of your data management plan, so remember to write accurately, clearly and fully. Have a look at our detailed instructions in this guide .
Once you complete your final milestone - Progress Review 3 , the Graduate School will mark you as being eligible for thesis submission :
- A Thesis Dashboard will appear when you login to UQRDM .
- You will submit your thesis through the Thesis Dashboard.
- You will be able to follow the progress of your thesis there.
If you cannot see the Thesis Dashboard, contact [email protected] .
Submitting your thesis
Prepare for submission:
- You need to own an active UQRDM project record (created with your student email ). Note if your record is still Pending Approval from your Principal Advisor, you will not be able to add Additional UQ Supervisors, ORCiD information will not appear either.
- The project record should be marked as a HDR project record.
- Your Principal Advisor should be the Lead Investigator on that record ( how to set up a HDR project record ).
- Additional UQ advisors should be added as collaborators on your project record (how to add collaborators ).
- Ensure the project record is up to date and accurate ( how to update your record metadata ).
- Have all research data related to your thesis project stored in UQRDM .
- Finalise your thesis , turn the document into a PDF file.
- Prepare the iThenticate report (in PDF format) and any supplementary documents (if applicable). Supplementary documents can be in any format.
Submit your thesis :
- Click Thesis Dashboard in UQRDM .
- In the submission form , select the UQRDM project record related to your thesis that stores the data.
- Fill out the form. Some fields will be pre-filled with information you provided in the project record.
- Additional UQ supervisors can be added, but they need to be added as "collaborators" first on the project record. External supervisors cannot be added via UQRDM. Contact the Graduate School if you have an external advisor.
- Upload the thesis and supplementary files. It is recommended that multiple files be zipped and uploaded as a single supplementary file. Note the maximum size for a file is 5GB .
- Click Submit.
Go to the Thesis Dashboard
Your thesis will go to your principal advisor and then the Graduate School who will either approve the submission or request amendments.
Once approval has been received:
- Your examiners will be assigned and your thesis will be sent to them for evaluation.
- You will be notified of any action or changes required via email.
- You can follow the progress of your thesis through the Thesis Dashboard .
Your thesis will be marked as passed at the end of the examination process. You will then submit the final version - only the final version and the supplementary materials - of your thesis via the UQRDM Thesis Dashboard. At this point, you will be asked if you have assigned your intellectual property to UQ. Ensure you discuss this with your Principal Advisor prior to submitting the final thesis. See more information .
The final version of the thesis will go to your Principal Advisor and the Graduate School. They can either approve the final submission or request changes.
This is the final step. Once it's conferred, your thesis will be uploaded to UQ eSpace with appropriate access levels depending on the thesis embargo status.
Contact [email protected] if you have any queries or any problems during Thesis Submission process .
