Target Audience: All staff with a role in PG Research Supervision

The early stages of the PhD process form the foundation on which a successful student-supervisor relationship is built. Establishing shared understanding about roles and goals, and how these will evolve during your time working together, can significantly improve the chances of a successful outcome. 

This half-day course will give you tools and techniques to deal with:

  • recruitment and selection of PhD candidates
  • induction and integration of students into established research contexts
  • complex student issues
  • adapting your leadership style to meet the evolving needs of your PhD students

** This is an optional module of the Strathclyde Supervisor Development Programme (see link to webpage below) **
