Introductory and Best Practice workshops for Research Supervisors
The Graduate School's Research supervision Events 2019-2020 include Introductory sessions, best practice workshops and topics of advanced or specialist interest.
All supervisors who are new to supervising research degree students at Portsmouth are required to attend the Introductory Workshop for Research Supervisors before they can be confirmed on the research supervision team. The workshops provide an overview of the processes involved in managing a research degree student at Portsmouth as well as providing opportunities for you to pick up many hints and tips and to discuss the 'art' of supervision with experienced supervisors. These workshops take place twice a year.
