The regulations that govern PhD programmes are set out in the University Calendar section V and the Code of Practice for Research Candidature and Supervision.
Roles and responsibilities of being a supervisor are outlined in paragraphs 37 to 46 of the Code of Practice and paragraphs 63 to 65 concern progress monitoring. It is worth being familiar with the regulations and the expectations placed upon you as a Supervisor.
Please also read the PGR Student Handbook which can be downloaded here.
If you are a new Supervisor, the PGR Team are happy to arrange a 1-2-1 session with you and go through the student life cycle, processes and milestones and the rules and regulations. Feel free to drop by at anytime and speak to a member of the team.
