Required Training for Postgraduate Research Supervisors

Main supervisors at the University of Dundee are required under the Research Degrees Quality Code to have completed training as a condition for accreditation. Supervisors are also expected to refresh this training every five years.

At present, compulsory training for PGR supervisors has two main components:

- Core supervisor training, currently delivered by OPD in the form of the webinar "Doctoral Supervision at Dundee". This runs regularly on the OPD programme and can be booked using our normal booking system

- Completion of the online Research Integrity Training Resource, which can be accessed via My Organisations on BlackBoard. 

Supervisors are strongly encouraged to take advantage of additional opportunities to enhance their practice.
