Conducting a review of a doctoral candidate's progress has two central aims: to provide an opportunity for the candidate and the supervision team to discuss past activities and current progress, and to outline and plan for the next stage of candidature. Reviews requiring written progress reports, both from supervisors
and the candidate, generally occur annually or biannually. In addition, some academic departments require a review of candidature to occur mid-candidature. The process of confirmation of candidature is also now in practice in a number of universities, and at the end of a set period (usually within 12 months or equivalent for part-time candidates), the confirmation committee signs a statement that the candidate has satisfactorily completed the prescribed tasks and may proceed with their research.
