The transition between the coursework phase and the research phase is by the candidate satisfactorily completing the set of assessed Research Proposals (one for each research project).

Phase 2:
On satisfactory completion of the coursework units that are scheduled over the first year, candidates enter the research phase where they undertake individual, supervised research projects.
