We are keen for our supervisors to keep up-to-date and supported in their supervising duties. Training opportunities, led by the University Research Office and externally, will be posted on this page.
All supervisorary teams are allocated a Research Office discussant, as an additional support for the supervisory team (as opposed to the student directly) in the event of any wider issues/concerns etc. through the course of udnertaking your supervisory duties. Supervisors are also welcome to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any generic queries.
Supervisors and their students are also encouraged to attend and participate in the University wide seminars and events. Full details can be found on the events page.
