Postgraduate Supervision

The style of supervision provided depends upon the type of project and the individual student. 

It generally involves daily to weekly informal meetings with the research supervisor, together with the requirement for the student to write periodic progress reports. 

Academic supervisors and technical staff are always willing to provide support and guidance should students encounter any difficulties in their research.
