Workshops for Research Degree Supervisors

Theses at UoNNew for this year, we are running a series of workshops for research degree supervisors related to the stage that your student has reached. These workshops will be a mix of information about the formal procedures with a discussion about how to support the student through this phase of their programme. The two ‘early stages’ workshops are timed to coincide with student induction when you may have a student starting their research degree programme.  All workshops are equally appropriate for those new to supervision and for those experienced supervisors who need a refresher.

Supervising the early stages of a research degree

This workshop is intended for supervisors who are supervising a research degree student who is just starting. We will cover the formal requirements of the student and the supervisory team between initial enrolment and transfer. We will ensure that you are aware of the university’s but we will also have some discussion about how we can supervise students in these early stages. This workshop is equally appropriate for those new to supervision and for those experienced supervisors who need a refresher. The workshop will run again on Wed 14 March 2018.
