Talking Research: How to Choose a Higher Degree Research Supervisor

About The Event

Join us for our final Talking Research webinar of 2023, featuring Prof Brett Williams, A/Prof Paul Simpson, and Prof Peter O’Meara, who will delve into the critical aspects of selecting a higher degree research (HDR) supervisor. During this session, they will explore the perspectives of both PhD supervisors and HDR students, discuss various supervisory styles, provide insights into what questions to ask and what qualities to look for, and offer valuable tips on finding the ideal HDR supervisor for your individual research journey. This will be followed by a discussion/Q&A session with the opportunity to engage with the researchers who will answer all your questions around this pivotal decision.
