Supervisor training

Becoming a supervisor or renewing your supervisor training.

For those new to the role of supervising PhD students, and for those who need to renew their training after 5 years, a 'Supervisor Briefing’ is organised by the Institute for Academic Development (IAD) on behalf of the Colleges, which is offered several times a year, focusing on University regulations, procedures and support available.

This three-hour briefing will provide all supervisors with the information and support required for their role as supervisor at the University of Edinburgh.

Designed to provide supervisors with information on University expectations, including regulations, procedures and support for their role, the session will also allow for opportunities to reflect on and discuss the process of supervising PhD students, including case studies and strategies for dealing with the challenges.
