Degree Committee for the Faculty of Earth Sciences & Geography


Code of Practice

PhD, MSc, MPhil by thesis: The University's Code of Practice for Research Students sets out the mutual responsibilities and expectations of research students, their supervisors and others responsible for postgraduate study. You should familiarise yourself with the Code. Supervisors and Advisors are asked to sign each student's copy of the Code to confirm that they have read and discussed it.

Supervisor and student should agree frequency and timing of meetings from the outset and review it regularly. You might find it useful to complete the Research and Resources form with your new student to agree expectations relating to frequency of contact and access to facilities.

MRes, MPhil with taught elements: The Code of Practice for Masters Students covers students on taught programmes.
