EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Authority for making the instrument:  Vice-Chancellorship Statute 2013, section 9.5.

 

 

2. Purpose and operation of the instrument:  The Rule provides a framework in relation to the undertaking of programs of study leading to the award of research awards of the University.

 

 

3. Documents incorporated in the instrument by reference:  None.

 

 

4. Consultation process: The University’s current HDR Administration Support Project includes implementation of digitised and automated thesis submission and examination. Central to this new process will be: digitisation of processes including automated electronic workflow; electronic thesis submission; transition away from hard copy, face-to-face submission and posting of theses; automation of all attachments and correspondence; and student self-management and tracking of the thesis examination. To give effect to these service improvements, amendments to the Research Award Rule 2016 are required. The amendments made to the Rule are limited to removal of the requirement for submission of thesis hard copies. These changes have been endorsed for approval through a new Rule by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) and the Academic Board.
