Learning supervisory skills is considered an important part of the research training experience. Often PhD students are asked by their supervisors to help with the supervision of UG final-year projects and/or MSc projects. It is recommended that doctoral students discuss their supervision of taught students with their supervisor and agree an appropriate level of contribution.

It is essential that your academic progression is not negatively impacted by an excessive supervisory workload and thus provided guidance on PhD students help with supervision UG and Sc projects.  Students wishing to raise concerns about their workload with respect to the supervision of taught students should talk to their Senior Tutor (PGR).
