- review process instructions (link)
All research students in STS receive regular reviews of their progress, at 6 months, 1 year, and yearly afterwards. The reviews are organised by the principal supervisor in consultation with the Graduate Tutor and the student.
Methodology and Academic Development (MAD) programme
The STS Department operates a programme in Methodology and Academic Development for research students, which also satisfies the training requirement for students funded by research councils. Every research student who has not reached the CRS (completing research student) stage must follow this programme, accumulating a minimum of 30 points per year (15 points for part-timers). Activities carried out must be recorded on the online skills register (login on the left-hand side on that page), which will be monitored at each progress review meeting. Details of the MAD programme are available here. For details of methodology and training courses offered centrally through the Graduate School, click here.
From 2009, all new incoming students will be required to attend several taught causes in their first year. Details are here.
Research student log
All pre-CRS students must maintain records of their progress using the UCL Research Student Log. Please note use of the new Research Student Log is mandatory. Please make sure that both you and your supervisors are registered and keep track of all skills training activities and supervisions through the Research Student Log.

UCL now requres students' explicit permission to release personal information to potential empoloyers or other academic institutions. If you need a reference please complete a request form and e-mail it to the referee together with details of the job/ course applied for and a copy of your CV.
