3. COMPLETION PLAN FOR PROGRAM
The Graduate Research School routinely requests that students submit Completion Plans with applications for
extension or for a Completion Scholarship. The Completion Plan is a detailed timeline for completion of the tasks
that remain for finalisation of the thesis. (Please see sample Completion Plan on the last page.) It should include
a brief description of any strategies that will be employed to overcome logistical or other barriers. The Completion
Plan is negotiated between the student and their supervisor/s, detailing the actions required by all parties to reach
the point of submitting a thesis for examination.
The Completion plan is essentially an agreement between the student and the supervisor/s. It is lodged with the
Graduate Research School as evidence that the parties have discussed and developed strategies and actions,
and now have an agreed, realistic timeline for ensuring that the thesis is finished within the time stipulated.
Key points to note when compiling an effective Completion Plan:
The Completion Plan must be negotiated between the student and the supervisor/s.
The Completion Plan must take realistic account of any factors that may influence progress (e.g. one or
more parties being away or having heavy commitments at particular times, limited availability of required
material or resources.
Dates must be provided.
