The Doctoral College and the Researcher Development programme are committed to supporting excellence in supervision and building a community of practice sharing to support and develop supervisors at all levels. This is because we both appreciate how important high quality supervision is for a successful and positive doctoral experience, as well as value the complex and dynamic role that our academic staff are undertaking when they become doctoral supervisors.   As such, we are dedicated to providing supervisors with initial training to build their skills and understanding as they begin their supervision journey, provide ongoing professional development sessions for supervisors throughout their career, as well as offering one-to-one support.  Please email if you have any supervision related questions or concerns, or suggestions about how we can better support you.
