Supervision Master Class: Best Practice in Doctoral Admissions

Participation in this workshops will provide the necessary training for staff to be involved in approving PGR admissions

The QAA have revised the section of the UK Quality Code covering Research Degrees. It is now a requirement that all staff involved in admissions decisions have to be trained to ensure balanced and independent admissions decisions. At the same time within the University it has been noted that admissions decisions have become more challenging than ever with increased numbers of international applicants applying from a broader range of countries than ever before and a reduced number of research council funded studentships.

Within this University are many senior academics with years of experience making admissions decisions and have much to share in terms of advice and best practice with their colleagues.

Therefore, we are holding a series of workshops to create a platform to share this experience and best practice and to look at how it embodies the requirements of the UK Quality Code as well as the relevant legislation, such as the Equality Act 2010.

Participants in this workshop will:
• Gain an understanding of the updated QAA admissions regulations for Research Degrees.
• Understand the relevance of the Equality Act of 2010 to admissions decisions.
• Share both negative experiences and best practice in interviewing and accepting doctoral students.

17th November 2016, 10:00 - 11:30
