Speak to any doctoral researcher and they will say their relationship with their supervisor is one of their most important relationships. Our supervisors are our advisors, our mentors, our critical friends, our sources of information and contacts – and lots more besides. At the same time, many doctoral researchers speak of encountering tensions in relationships with supervisors, some of which can be readily fixed and others which may lead to a request for a change of supervisor.
On Tuesday, 27th March at 12noon, the scholars are organising a peer-led discussion in the Hive around supervision. It will offer an opportunity to share the positives of our experience of supervision – and also to share how we have dealt with any problems that have arisen.
Do come along ready to share your experiences and to offer suggestions and support to others.
