Action and support is available to all candidates at RMIT. You may self-identify that you need some additional support during your candidature. Your supervisory team or HDR Delegated Authority, or HDR DA (the academic who oversees HDR in your school), may also nominate you for action and support. This might occur if you are facing delays with your research, need extra support to successfully complete your next milestone or if you have circumstances in your research (or your life) that might impact on your research. Specific situations that indicate that action and support is required are set out in section 1.3 of the HDR action and support procedure.

The action and support that you receive is tailored to you and your situation. It may include more frequent meetings with your supervisory team, referral to academic or wellbeing support services or making variations to your candidature.
