Thesis Committees

Though all NDCN postgraduate students have at least two supervisors as standard, they also have the option of putting together a thesis committee for further support as they progress through their milestones. If you would like to organise one, please email to discuss further. On this page you can find an outline of the thesis committee purpose, structure, and expectations from you if you set one up.

Code of Practice

The department abides by the divisional Code of Practice for the supervision of research students.This states 'Each department has an approved statement of provision for graduate students which specifies the expected frequency of supervisory meetings. Supervisors must ensure that they are familiar with their departmental statement and that the agreed schedule of meetings with the student meets the requirements of the statement.' The Graduate Studies Committee has agreed that no further departmental statement is necessary, and offers provision at the level outlined in the divisional document.
