Supervising Graduate Students: Workshop for Supervisors (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences)

Mon 28 Oct 2019


If you are new to supervising graduate students at Cambridge (studying both for one-year courses or PhDs) the Board of Graduate Studies strongly recommends you to take part in some form of professional development. In collaboration with BGS, the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning offers training and support for newly-appointed supervisors of graduate students and for those new to the Cambridge system. The workshops, which run over lunchtime, are designed to consider reciprocal expectations and duties, as well as approaches to supervising, and to raise awareness of possible issues and where to go for support.

Target audience
  • Principal supervisor or co-supervisor of graduate students (University staff)
  • Please note that PhD students are not eligible for this course
  • If you are a PhD student please see the Researcher Development Programme which offers courses on supervising for PhD students
  • Further details regarding CCTL's eligibility criteria are available here
