To ensure PhD students are not disadvantaged by an overloaded supervisor, the School implemented a policy to manage the number of PhD students who could be allocated to academic staff new to PhD supervision. This was communicated to staff via the School General Meeting on 20 Feb 2020.
“New academic staff who have not yet graduated a doctoral student, either at Edinburgh or at a previous institution, as first supervisor, will normally be permitted to be first supervisor to no more than 4 PhD students.”
Policy implemented from Sept 2020 (does not apply retrospectively).
