Supervision and research training

Each student is supported by two supervisors who are able to provide expert guidance to help you develop your thesis.

Every project is different, so supervision is geared to identify each student's needs in terms of working patterns and specific training requirements.

For example, your supervisors may work as Principal and Assistant supervisors or as Co-supervisors sharing supervision equally depending on the nature of your project and your working style.

Students are also encouraged to consult any other member of staff whose work or interests may be relevant to their own.

Supervision may also be shared across areas within the School, or colleagues from elsewhere in the University may be appointed as co-supervisors as appropriate to maximise the expertise available to you.

All students are expected to undertake research training as specified by their supervisors, and as relevant to their topic.
