guidelines on the purpose of your second annual progress review
Guidelines on the purpose of your second annual progress review

“The purpose of this progress review is to monitor your progress and to identify any factors which might lead to a delay in the submission of your thesis.”

and recommended report structure and format
….and recommended report structure and format

“We do not require a written report of the length you produced for your first progress review.

We recommend the following structure for your report:

1. A summary of the data you have acquired to date 14

2. Detailed analysis of a complete portion of your data

3. A discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of your study to date

4. A list indicating what you will need to achieve in order to complete your work

5. An appendix containing any abstracts, manuscripts or papers you have written or presented

As projects develop differently, we believe a word limit is of limited value by this stage. However, we would expect this report to be about 3–4 pages (excluding any figures), but not to exceed 10 pages (double line spacing), including figures but excluding any appendix.”
