Supervise research students
Supervising research students is one of the most significant aspects of a successful academic career.
Successful supervisors are the mentors of the next generation of researchers and therefore undertaking supervision allows academics to maximise their contribution to new knowledge and scholarly enquiry.
The benefits of supervising include working with new research collaborators who bring a new view point to the discipline, joint publications and a means of building a collegial team of like-minded researchers.
Attracting, supervising and completing research students in a timely manner requires a range of skills and knowledge. It requires academics to keep abreast of changes within the university as well as national policies and international trends.
The Office of Graduate Studies is here to help supervisors access the information and training needed to succeed in this area.
