Training

The Doctoral College provides training for new and experienced PGR supervisors at Queen Mary. The below information details what training is available to those new to PGR supervision as well as faculty-specific refresher training for experience PGR supervisors. 

New PGR Supervisor Training

New Supervisor Training is for those who have never supervised a PhD to completion. New Supervisors Training sessions are now completed through online delivery. Staff new to supervising have to be enrolled to the QMPlus section "PhD Supervisor Training": https://qmplus.qmul.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=9239 

Academic staff who require training for New PGR Supervisors should access the QMPLus area and self-enrol to the course. Once enrolled staff can complete the training in self-study at their convenience. 

Staff are required to read and complete the items in Workshop 1 and Workshop 2 displayed on the QMPlus section "PhD Supervisor Training": https://qmplus.qmul.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=9239 

Staff are then required to complete and submit a copy of the New Supervisor Training Quiz - 80% is considered a pass mark.  All completed quiz attempts will be logged. All results above the pass mark will then be logged as training completed and participants will be issued with a training certificate. This will be processed once a month.

The training will cover the following subjects:

  • PGR Student Careers, Training and Wellbeing
  • Introduction to Regulations
  • Common Problems and Sharing Good Practice

Refresher PGR Supervisor Training
