Research Supervision

In recent years there have been a number of policy initiatives and sector-wide changes affecting the nature of doctoral supervision. Changes and enhancements around the process of doctoral supervision have also been made at a local level within the University.

We hope that the information, resources and links on these pages will enable you, as a doctoral supervisor, to refresh your knowledge and understanding.

The Centre for Higher Education Practice offers a number of development opportunities related to postgraduate supervision within its provision for Academic Staff.
