PhD and supervisor issues

Postgraduate research degree supervisor issues

On occasion, students may be unhappy with the partnership with their supervisor. The College has a confidential mediation service which can be used should problems arise.

The College Graduate School runs a Postgraduate Student Coaching Programme which aims to provide students the opportunity to talk, independently from your academic department, about challenges you may be experiencing during the course of your studies. The programme primarily focuses on building effective working relationships and there may be other self-development issues that you wish to explore.

If you would like independent advice, the Advice Centre is here to provide impartial support. An Advice Caseworker can go through the regulations with you, as well as communicate with your department should you need.
