Research Progress Report


Students are required to submit a bi-annual research progress report via myISIS (Self Service > Research Progress > My Progress Report).

Students will need to provide a summary of the work they did in the previous semester and what they will be doing in the current semester.


The Research Progress Report submission periods are August (for assessment of research progress in Semester 2 of the previous Academic Year) and in January (for assessment of research progress in Semester 1 of the current Academic Year).


  • Report submitted in August 2015 will be assessed for work done from Jan - July 2015.
  • Report submitted in January 2016 will be assessed for work done from Aug - Dec 2015.


Students will be notified via email of the submission period. Upon receiving the email, they should complete the submission online promptly to allow sufficient time for their supervisor(s), Head of Department/ Programme and Faculty to complete their assessments and recommendations for continuation of candidature.

For scholars, scholarship renewal will be tied in with the semestral progress report. Students are to note that their scholarship will be suspended if they do not complete the research progress report by the deadline.

Students who are in their first term (semester) of study are not required to submit the Research Progress Report.
