Postgraduate Research Supervisors

The research supervisory relationship is complex, not least because supervisors wear many ‘hats’ - that of subject expert; mentor; patron; wellbeing and pastoral care supporter; co-author; careers and skills adviser and all round go-to expert.

The York PGR Supervision Programme includes:

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.
