Minimum Resources Agreement

The Postgraduate Students’ Association (PGSA) and Victoria University of Wellington have negotiated this agreement in order to make clear the basic resources that will be provided to all research students. Both the PGSA and the University encourage Schools to exceed the requirements recorded in this agreement wherever possible. These resources are to be provided in addition to the general services provided to all students at the University. The Minimum Resources Agreement applies to both full and half-time students carrying out a degree by research: a Doctorate or a Master’s degree with a 90/120 point thesis. Further, this agreement applies to students who are revising or making corrections to a thesis after it has been examined and before it is lodged in the library.

The Minimum Resources Agreement (which applies to postgraduate research thesis students) was reviewed during 2017 and is now available at this link https://www.victoria.ac.nz/fgr/current-phd/Publications/minimum-resources-agreement.pdf
