It is really important that you self-assess whether or not you will meet the criteria for registration on the MQSR before you register to do HDR01. If you apply to register, and do not meet the criteria, Faculty will reject your application.
As outlined in the MQ HDR Supervision Policy, this is the criteria you must meet (edited slightly for the purposes of this post).
You can self-assess if you meet the criteria. If you are unsure, have a talk with the relevant person in your School or Faculty.
In order to be registered on the MQSR the person must meet all of the below requirements:
be a Macquarie University academic staff member with either a full-time appointment or a part-time appointment of not less than three years.
be research active
be up-to-date with the Supervision Enhancement Program (ie have completed the orientation program), and
have the approval of the Executive Dean to be [included on the register].
