This article will explain who has to do a major review.

If you are registered for a PhD or MD you will need to complete a Major Review to confirm your registration for the award.

PGRS registered and submitting for the award of MPhil, on advice from their First Supervisor, may submit for Major Review if they wish to apply to upgrade to a PhD registration.

A full-time PGRS will need to submit the required documentation within 12 months of study or submit within 24 months if they are a part-time PGRS.

  • PGRS registered in October must submit documentation by 30th September
  • PGRS registered in February must submit documentation by 31st January
  • PGRS registered in April must submit documentation by 31st March
