Postgraduate supervision in practice

Do you supervise PhD students or will you do so soon? As a supervisor, you need to find ways of working that are both effective and individually tailored to the students’ needs.

The course provides a time and a place to discuss and reflect on the role of supervisors together with other colleagues. Sharing experiences across the borders of faculties and disciplines provide wider perspectives, stimulates innovation and strengthens your identity as a supervisor.
