The York PGR Supervision Programme includes:
PGR Supervisor web resources
Information and useable resources on the PhD process and research supervision role.
Being an Effective Research Supervisor Tutorial (BERST)

Workshops for new and experienced supervisors are available to book via the Learning Management System (LMS).
Expectations in Research Supervision Questionnaire
Designed to facilitate a discussion of expectations held by PGRs and supervisors. It is recommended that the form be completed independently by the supervisor(s) and the PGR and that the responses be the topic of discussion at a supervision meeting.
Principles of supervision
Within three months of the start of a PGRs registration, their supervisor(s) are expected to sign in Skillsforge that they have read 'Principles of supervision', summarising what is most essential to a successful supervisory relationship.
