Domain BThe relationship with your supervisor can really impact on your PhD experience and in this session we explore that relationship to help you identify how to make the most of it.  As a PhD student you will carry lots of assumptions about your supervisors, assumptions about what is expected of you and assumptions about what you want from supervision.

Key areas covered will be:

  • understanding your assumptions and the nature of your relationship(s) with your supervisor(s)
  • identifying what you need from the relationship and how to make the most of it
  • looking beyond ‘supervision’ to think about your wider PhD team

Previous participants feedback:

“Changed my perspective on how I see my supervisors and how to make the most supervision, as well as other ways to get feedback on my PhD”

“Enjoyable.  It made me think about the supervision process in a more understanding manner.”

“To look at my supervisor’s perspective more consciously and not become so absorbed in my own worries/concerns/assumptions.”

“Be more honest and tell my supervisor what is on my mind instead”
