Supervisory meeting guidance

Research students and supervisors are responsible for maintaining regular contact with each other and ensuring that supervision meetings take place.  As a minimum, supervision meetings are expected to take place, once a month for full-time candidates and once every two months for part-time candidates. Supervision meetings may take place in a range of ways such as by telephone, video conference or email contact where the candidate is, for example, based overseas at a particular point in time. It is the joint responsibility of the student and supervisory team to ensure that arrangements can be made for supervision to take place.

Records of supervision meetings should be kept by both the student and the supervisor.

If your student is not responding to you or you lose contact with them please report this to the University Research Office by phone on 0113 812 23558 or email
