(2) (a) If the host institution allows direct admission into the relevant doctoral programme for U.S. applicants, they have applied for and been accepted into the programme, or (b) if the host institution does not allow direct admission to the doctoral programme (e.g., if candidates are admitted initially only as candidates for an intermediate graduate degree), they have successfully achieved the status of doctoral candidate within the time expected by the host institution, and

(3) Their supervisor provides (in addition to departmental confirmation of adequate progress at the end of the Scholar’s first year) written confirmation during the final term of the Scholar’s second year that the Scholar is making satisfactory progress toward the relevant doctoral degree.
