This area of the Research Student Intranet aims to provide information specifically for supervisors of research candidates. Supervisors are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the various stages of the Research Journey, the relevant policies and documentation, as well as the support services for HDR candidates.
While the entire Research Student Intranet provides valuable information for both students and supervisors, this section will focus on requirements for HDR Supervision and additional development opportunities, resources, and other support information specific to supervision.
