Course Description

Managing the relationship with your supervisor(s) throughout your research degree can be highly challenging, as well as greatly rewarding. This course will look at the different expectations that supervisors and students have of the doctoral process. It will help you to clarify what you need from your supervisor(s) and identify a range of approaches for getting the best from busy academic staff. After the workshop, there will be an opportunity for confidential one to one follow up sessions on zoom for participants who want to discuss individual issues. These should be booked directly with the facilitator before, during or within 24 hours of the programme.

Participants will be sent a narrated powerpoint to work through in their own time one week prior to the course. This could take up to one hour and the course itself will assume that the participants are familiar with the language of the five approaches.
