Research supervision

The research supervision website is intended as a convenient resource for supervisors, doctoral students and others. It was developed following discussions with Directors of Graduate Studies, supervisors and students about the developmental needs created by the changing context of doctoral education at Oxford.

Unless otherwise stated, the words of doctoral students and new supervisors quoted on these pages are extracted from interviews carried out by members of the Oxford Learning Institute with the help of doctoral students from 2007-2010.

The related link 'About the research supervision pages' explains the structure of pages within the site and suggests how different audiences may use the resources on offer. You can also find out how to give us feedback on the site or make contributions to its ongoing development.

Among the downloadable documents listed on the right, the 'Website overview' gives an outline and general idea of the website for anyone who is interested, together with a few detailed examples of contents. The other documents specifically address the concerns of different groups whose needs we aim to address, helping them to make the most effective use of the site.
