Postgraduate Admissions


The degree committee takes responsibility for recommending admission to the Postgraduate Admissions Office; in doing so, it ensures that the faculty or department has discharged its duties as set out in the previous page.

The degree committee should:

  • review applications and make recommendations in a timely manner; this process may be delegated to one or more officers of the degree committee except where the degree committee also assumes responsibility for overseeing the balance of offers between courses run by the institution
  • propose the conditions of the offer including the general area of research (on the recommendation of the Head of the institution)
  • appoint the principal supervisor
    • determine whether or not he or she is a new supervisor and if so,
    • consider what training he or she should be required to attend
    • ensure that he or she is registered for use of CGSRS.
