* ''Probation'' - Research postgraduate students are admitted on a probationary basis pending confirmation of their candidacy for the degree with twelve months (M.Phil. and three-year Ph.D.) or eighteen months (four-year Ph.D.). (For details, see the Graduate School information page [[http://www.gradsch.hku.hk/gradsch/web/apply/guide1516/3-1.html|here]]). By the end of the probationary period, MPhil/PhD candidates must demonstrate capability in research, submit a detailed scheme of research, and complete the required proportion of coursework (in the case of M.Phil. and four-year Ph.D. students). To qualify for confirmation of candidacy for their degree, RPGs in Philosophy must submit a detailed research proposal, along with a bibliography and one sample thesis chapter, and pass an oral examination consisting of a twenty-minute presentation of their research plans and a discussion period. The examination committee will consist of the student's supervisor, appointed mentor, and one other internal faculty member. (For further information on the pre-confirmation research proposal, see the Arts Faculty guidelines: [[http://arts.hku.hk/PGprogrammes/rpg/guidelines.html]].)
