Course Description:

The focus of this course is on the supervision process and how you, as a supervisor, can structure and organise the period of time available to maximise the likelihood that your students will produce a project report, dissertation or research thesis of excellent quality that meets the standards required.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Articulate how you intend to approach supervising before you begin;
  • Identify the main differences between supervision at undergraduate and postgraduate level;
  • Plan different ways to get students started on their project or dissertation;
  • Reflect on some of the factors that need to be taken into account as students progress;
