Postgraduate Research Essentials: finding support and making changes to your degree

Updated on 8 November 2023

Withdrawals, extensions, terminations and the Postgraduate Appeals Process

What to do if you are struggling with your degree

If you are having difficulties during your research degree, please know that you are not alone. There are lots of people and groups in the University who are there to support you and help get things back on track. Whether you are facing academic concerns, problems in your personal life or a mixture of both, we have a variety of teams who are here to help you. Please do not struggle in silence.

In the first instance, please consider approaching your supervisory team for a discussion about the difficulties you have been having. We encourage open and honest communication between postgraduate researchers and their supervisors, and your supervisors will be able to help you more effectively if they are aware of issues that are impacting on your progress.

Your School also has wider support systems in place to help, and you may wish to approach these contacts first if you are uncomfortable approaching your supervisors for any reason:

  • Your Thesis Monitoring Committee (TMC) is there to ensure that you have the support you need and to give you space to discuss your concerns confidentially with academics who are not your supervisor.
  • Your School’s PGR Lead is an academic with overarching responsibility for your School’s PGR programmes.

You can also seek help and advice outside of your School:

  • The Doctoral Academy supports postgraduate researchers across the University, and it can help to connect you with resources and specialist services – see their Resources page .
  • The Enquiry Centre can put you in touch with dedicated pastoral support staff and the Counselling Service.
  • The Early Dispute Resolution (mediation) system is designed to help you to anticipate, avoid, prevent and resolve disputes, and it can support you if you are struggling with conflict in your workplace.
  • The Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) provides an independent and non-judgemental advice service. They can give you free, impartial advice on a variety of academic and personal matters, and they can represent you if you need to make an appeal or complaint.
  • The University Chaplaincy can support your health and wellbeing through email or personal meetings.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and have no idea where to turn, please contact the Doctoral Academy .

Making changes to your degree

If you are considering making any changes to your research degree, for example a change of degree programme, degree length, degree mode (full-time/part-time) or supervisor, please discuss this with your supervisory team in the first instance. You should do this as far in advance as possible.

Any changes will require the approval of your supervisor and School, and they will need to go through the official channels so that your University records are kept accurate and your tuition fees are charged correctly. If you have any questions about the administrative process of making a change to your degree, please approach your School’s PGR Office first. 

You must make sure that you are aware of any conditions or restrictions attached to your funding or current degree programme that would prevent you from making changes. It is your responsibility to obtain approval from your funding body/sponsor where this is required, as well as obtaining permission from your School. 

For PGRs on Student visas: please discuss any possible changes to your degree course with our Immigration Compliance Officer as well as your School. They will make you aware of the implications the change would have for your visa.

Temporary withdrawal from study

If you wish to request a temporary withdrawal, discuss this with your supervisor and your School’s PGR Office. You will be asked to fill out a form outlining your proposed length of time away and the reasons for your request, and to submit any relevant documentation connected to your reasons for withdrawing. Your School will then consider your request and, if approved, will inform Registry so that your records are updated.

You should begin discussions as far in advance as possible to allow enough time for the School to consider your temporary withdrawal request. Please be aware that retrospective applications for temporary withdrawal are not normally accepted, so you should secure full approval from your School well in advance of your temporary withdrawal period.

Remember to check the terms and conditions of your funding to see how temporary withdrawal will affect it, and if you have a sponsor, make sure you let them know that you are planning to withdraw temporarily.

For PGRs on student visas: you must ensure that you are fully aware of the impact that a temporary withdrawal will have on your visa. Check the terms of your visa and discuss your possible withdrawal with our  Immigration Compliance Officer  as soon as possible.

There are two different ways of granting you extra time in your research degree. The first one is called a ‘discount period’ and the second one an ‘extension of studies’.

A discount period is extra time added which does not show as exceeding the maximum length of your degree. This is usually assessed and granted retrospectively.

An extension of studies is extra time added which shows as exceeding the maximum length of your degree. This is usually not granted retrospectively.

Discount periods

If you are facing medical, personal or other circumstances that are serious but do not merit a longer period of temporary withdrawal, your School may consider recommending that a period of study be discounted from your maximum study period. Please discuss this with your supervisors in the first instance, and your School’s PGR Office will be able to advise you on the administrative processes.

You must make sure you understand the effect of a discount period on your funding, that your funding body or sponsor is kept updated about your study end date and, where necessary, approval is sought from your funding body or sponsor as well as from your School.

For PGRs on Student visas: you must ensure that you are fully aware of all considerations for your visa and residency status. Refer to the terms of your visa and discuss your situation with our Immigration Compliance Officer as soon as possible.

Extension of studies

If you think you might need to extend your studies beyond the maximum permitted period, please discuss this with your supervisor as soon as possible. If there is strong justification for your case, you may be able to apply for an extension of studies with your School. If your supervisor is in agreement that you should submit an extension request, you can obtain an extension request form from your School’s PGR Office.

Please note that extension requests are not guaranteed to be approved, and Senate approval is required if the total time you are requesting is longer than 12 months. Extension periods are also not normally granted retrospectively.

You must make sure you understand the effect of an extension on your funding and that, where relevant, your funding body or sponsor is kept updated about your plans for extension. Please note that you may need written approval for extension from your funding body as well as your School.

For PGRs on Student visas: you must ensure that you are fully aware of all considerations for your visa and residency status. Refer to the terms of your visa and discuss your possible extension with our Immigration Compliance Officer as soon as possible.

Permanent withdrawal from your degree

If you are considering withdrawing from your research degree permanently, we are here to support you. There are a large variety of people at the University whom you can approach for advice, and we would encourage you to have open and honest discussions with more than one person to help you to come to a decision that is right for you. We would also suggest that you give yourself plenty of time and space to consider all the factors playing into your possible withdrawal and explore all the alternatives – you should not feel pressurised to come to an immediate decision.

Firstly, we would encourage you to talk to your supervisors if you are considering permanent withdrawal. They can help you to review the issues you are facing and evaluate the pros and cons of withdrawing, and they will be able to suggest adjustments, accommodations and alternatives to withdrawal that could help you to continue with your research degree. If you would like to withdraw from your degree to pursue other opportunities, they may also be able to provide careers advice.

You can find a list of other contacts to consider approaching in the section on what to do if you are struggling with your degree. The Careers Service is also available to advise you about alternative opportunities: they offer free information, support and guidance on all aspects of careers and employability to postgraduate researchers.

For PGRs on Student visas: if you are considering permanently withdrawing from your degree, you must ensure you are fully aware of the impact this will have on your visa and residency status, and of the University’s obligations to report your withdrawal to UKVI. Refer to the terms of your visa and discuss your possible permanent withdrawal with our Immigration Compliance Officer as soon as possible.

If you do decide to withdraw from your degree, you should confirm this with your supervisors and your School’s PGR Office, and they will advise you on the process of formalising your withdrawal.

Termination of studies

‘Termination of studies’ refers to a School/University decision to stop your research degree, rather than a voluntary withdrawal. Please read Section 4.4 of the Research Degrees Quality Code for full details of the process.

You can only become liable for termination of studies if you meet one or more specific circumstances laid out in University policy, such as a sustained lack of engagement with supervisors or TMCs, failure to meet mandatory attendance requirements, unsatisfactory progress, or failure to meet previously agreed conditions for continued studies.

If you become liable for termination of studies, your School must issue you a formal Liable for Termination notification. This will specify the reasons for termination and allow you at least one month to rectify the situation in consultation with your supervisory team.

If you do not rectify the situation in accordance with the deadline specified in your Liable for Termination notification, then your studies will be terminated on the date specified in the notification. 

You can appeal against a termination of studies: please see our information on the Postgraduate Appeals Process for more details.

Postgraduate Appeals Process

If you wish to appeal against a decision made by the University, please read the guidance for the Postgraduate Appeals Procedure .  These detailed guidelines explain the remit of the Postgraduate Appeals Procedure and the process of submitting an appeal.

Please note that every appeal must be in writing and must be lodged with the University Secretary within four weeks of the date on which you were informed of the decision against which the appeal is directed.

You can get help preparing your appeal from the Students’ Assessors, and you can find their contact details and those of others who can help you on our Appeals page page.

Copying for private study

UK copyright law permits anyone to copy from a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work for your own  private   study , providing you are accessing the original legally, and your use is " fair dealing " (see below).

Printing, photocopying or scanning, ripping or downloading, screen capture, photography or filming, audio recording and transcribing are all regulated by copyright law.

It is your responsibility to avoid infringing copyright when using University of Dundee equipment to print, photocopy or scan.

If you have a disability which makes it difficult for you to work with material in its original format, and there's no accessible version available, you are entitled to copy the whole work into a different format which you can access more easily, or ask someone else to copy it for you.

Contact the Alternative Formats Service if you need assistance.

Start from the principle that your copying shouldn't undermine  the rights-holder's market   for their work , i.e. it doesn't substitute for purchasing/paying to view the original.

Just because you have accessed the original free-of-charge, don't conclude that copyright doesn't apply: if  someone could make money  from your reproduction (such as a publisher, or a web host selling advertising), then arguably the creator deserves a share of that revenue.

Even when you can't find a © symbol, a licence statement or 'terms and conditions', it's likely that someone still owns the copyright in the work. The only exception would be if  the creator of the work died  more than 70 years ago .

Always check the  terms of use  for any e-resource you're using for academic work, to note any restrictions on printing or downloading.

Assessment and learning portfolios

In the UK, it's legal for students to embed a "fair" amount of copyright material in coursework  to share with classmates, tutors, and examiners , but don't forget to attribute your source!

  • Provide  references  or links to published works you've read (books, journal articles, working papers etc) instead of sharing your own copy.
  • Pasting in a small extract from somebody else's work in the form of a fully referenced " quote " does not infringe their copyright.  You may "quote" from an artwork or audio-visual material as well as text.
  • If you want to incorporate a more substantial extract, such as a poem, artwork or  photo  in its entirety, try to  contact the creator  to ask for their permission.  Explain that your work will only be viewed by a small number of people, for a limited time.
  • If you are unable to identify the creator, or don't get a reply to your request,  consider providing a  link  to their material rather than copying it.

Advice on staff/student copyright ownership at the University of Dundee

Schools should be cautious about  publishing assessed work for a wider audience , as this may breach the student's copyright, as well as the authors of any material quoted or appended.

Your thesis or dissertation

Reproducing other people's copyright material for an  exam  (including submitting a thesis or dissertation) is permitted under UK law.

However, once your degree has been awarded, your work may in due course be released to a wider audience, not just your fellow students and tutors.  Every University of Dundee PhD student is required to deposit a digital copy of their thesis in the University's Institutional Repository Discovery.

Any material you have included which is not your own work may be in breach of copyright, unless you can defend your use as " Quotation ", i.e:

your source is fully acknowledged

you are quoting selectively from material which has already been made public

you can justify your selection for its relevance to your argument (in support or oppositional!)

Be especially careful when reproducing a  photo or illustration  - could you be undermining the creator's market for their work by distributing it free-to-view?  Or has it been released with a  Creative Commons  licence for re-use?

If you need to do more than "quote" someone else's work, you should ask the rights-holder for   permission   to reproduce their material.  You are best advised to undertake this before you submit, in case the rights-holder cannot be traced or is unwilling to allow you to use their work in the way you had intended.

If necessary, it may be possible to temporarily  embargo  your thesis until permission is granted, or  redact  the third party material.  University of Dundee students should contact the Discovery team .

You hold the copyright to your own work  in your thesis, as identified on the University of Dundee's Guidance on Copyright unless you have made a formal arrangement to transfer it to an external organization (e.g. a funder or sponsor).  By submitting your thesis for examination, you have agreed that it will be available for consultation and reproduction as permitted in law.  

For more information on copyright issues relating to publishing your research on Discovery, see our Research Services Guide on Intellectual Property and Copyright.

Sharing Copies

Sharing   a personal copy with friends, colleagues or contacts is a potential breach of copyright , unless you are a tutor distributing course reading to students under the terms of the University's CLA licence ,  or you are using a modest amount of someone else's material (fully attributed) for a  classroom activity or assessment .  

Users of academic profiling services (e.g.  ResearchGate  or  Academia )  and collaborative reference management tools (e.g.  EndNote Online or Mendeley ) should note that the terms and conditions of these services commit you to respect copyright when creating and sharing your reference library.

University of Dundee staff and students should know that  sharing your account details  to allow people who are not members of this university to read and copy journal articles and other e-resources is a breach of our licence agreement with the publisher, and may be subject to disciplinary action if discovered.

Be aware that publishers and web hosts remotely monitor patterns of downloading, and may ask the University to block an account or IP address if copyright infringement is suspected.

Further help

UK higher education IT specialists JISC have produced a concise and comprehensive  Copyright Guide for Students  (Dec 2014) 

The UK Intellectual Property Office released updated guidance (original version 2014 https://www.gov.uk/guidance/exceptions-to-copyright) on ' Exceptions to copyright ' in 2019, to help researchers and students stay within the law when using copyright material.  Researchers may also find the section on Text and data mining helpful

ISE Graduate Handbook 2024-2025: Master of Science Degree Programs

For general guidelines see  Graduate School Handbook

A. Admission Requirements

  • An applicant that has completed a series of Calculus courses through Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, a Probability course, and a Statistics course, may be considered for admission to the MS program.
  • The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required of all applicants.

B. Program Requirements

1. programs:.

Students may select the thesis option, or non-thesis option program of study. Students should design a plan of study in consultation with his/her advisor, considering such factors as time to degree, intellectual and professional objectives, educational background, and other factors. The program of study is established via signature approval of the Plan of Study form by the student’s faculty advisor and the ISE GSC Chairperson

2. Thesis Option Program Requirements:

The ISE MS thesis program requires a minimum of 30 total graduate-level credit hours (a minimum of 24 hours must be taken at OSU). A minimum of 22 semester hours of coursework, and a minimum of 4 semester hours of thesis research credit hours are required. The coursework consists of:

  • A minimum of 6 semester credit hours of ISE graduate level courses in one selected sub-discipline within ISE (Operations Research, Manufacturing, or Human Factors),
  • Students need to take a 3 semester hour "breadth course" that is approved by their advisor, and compliments their program. (Note: this could be from any department that provides a course deemed suitable by the advisor).
  • A minimum of 3 semester credit hours of graduate level coursework focused on mathematical, statistical, or numerical methodologies,
  • A minimum of 2 semester credit hours of ISE Graduate Research Seminar, and
  • Elective coursework.

MS ISE students electing the thesis option must also fulfill the Graduate School thesis examination and thesis document approval requirements. Please note that it is our department’s policy that the student shall not provide food and/or refreshments at their thesis defense.

3. Non-thesis Option Program Requirements:

The ISE MS non-thesis program requires a minimum of 30 total graduate-level credit hours (a minimum of 24 hours must be taken at OSU). The course work consists of:

  • Elective coursework

MS ISE students electing the non-thesis option must also fulfill the Graduate School 4-hour written exit examination requirement via the following options:

  • Under the supervision of a Category M or P faculty advisor in ISE, the student conducts an independent inquiry into a topic of personal intellectual interest in ISE (typically a topic not currently available in existing courses), and writing a summary (literature review) on that topic. The written document must have required at least 4 hours in its creation. Based on the discretion of the faculty advisor and MS committee member, the student may be required to give an oral presentation of the topic.
  • Under the supervision of a Category M or P faculty advisor in ISE, the student conducts an independent project of personal intellectual interest in ISE, and then summarizes the project in writing. The written document must have required at least 4 hours in its creation.. Often the project involves the student doing some laboratory work to design and/or construct hardware devices or computer models. Based on the discretion of the faculty advisor and MS committee member, the student may be required to give an oral presentation of the project activity. This option is often chosen by students in the Manufacturing Processes or Ergonomics subdisciplines of ISE.
  • The student enrolls in, and passes with a B or better, an “upper level” project-based course that is available to graduate students only, and is taught by a Category M or P faculty member in ISE. The project course must involve the application or integration of materials from lower level ISE graduate courses to an ISE engineering problem. Also, a final written summary report of the project is required, along with an oral presentation. This option is often chosen by students in the Operations Research sub-discipline in ISE.
  • Alternately, Operations Research students who did not receive a B or higher in a 7000-level OR course with a project requirement may instead take the M.S. Exit Examination. The M.S. Exit Examination is administered annually during the week after Spring final complete. Any ISE graduate student who achieves an overall GPA (including all courses taken at OSU) of 3.00 is eligible to take the exam. Those students who are planning to graduate in Autumn semester should take the exam in the preceding Spring semester. The process to sign-up for the exam will be announced during Spring semester. Students intending to take the exam must sign-up before the announced deadline, so there is sufficient time to check that the grade eligibility requirement is satisfied.

4. Additional Constraints:

A student with a BS degree from OSU may not double count undergraduate courses, that is, no course which was part of his/her undergraduate program may appear in his/her MS program. The only exception to this constraint would be students enrolled in the combined BS/MS program (see section XI of this handbook).

C. Other Considerations

Only the Graduate Studies Committee can grant exceptions to any of the above rules.

All decisions and revisions regarding a plan of study are to be made in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor.

A large portion of graduate education occurs outside of the classroom, in informal discussion with faculty members and other graduate students, in attendance at seminars, in research and teaching assignments, and so forth. All graduate students are expected to pursue such opportunities. These factors are considered by the Graduate Faculty and GSC when evaluating a student’s progress and development.

D. MS Examination Committee

The MS Examination Committee consists of the student’s advisor plus at least one additional graduate faculty member. Masters students can be advised by any tenure, clinical, or research track faculty members with a formal appointment or formal joint appointment in the Integrated Systems Engineering (ISE) Department that has the appropriate category M or P status within the department. Masters students can also be co-advised by a clinical, tenure or research track faculty outside ISE that has a courtesy appointment in ISE and category M or P status within the department and by an ISE clinical, tenure or research track faculty member with M or P status.

A faculty member must have at least Category M status (any program) in the graduate school to serve as a member of a MS examination committee.

For thesis students, this committee is the thesis reading committee and it administers a one-hour oral examination. The oral is not restricted to the thesis topic and may cover any aspect of the student’s program of study. It is the final validation of performance for that degree. Please note that it is our department’s policy that the student shall not provide food and/or refreshments at their thesis defense.

For non-thesis students, the committee oversees the Graduate School 4 hour written examination requirement, or equivalent evaluation of the student's knowledge of their field of study. It is the final validation of performance for that degree.

E. Time Limit and Registration

  • No time limit for the completion of the Master’s Degree program is imposed.
  • A student must be registered for at least three graduate credit hours the semester of graduation.
  • Students who complete the MS program in ISE must apply for the Ph.D. program, and be accepted, before they can continue as regular Ph.D. graduate students. Application forms are available from the ISE Graduate Coordinator or the ISE website.
