Problems with students: mediation and procedures

If you have problems with students, such as difficulties in supervisory arrangements, prolonged absence, breakdown of the supervisory relationship, please take early action: avoid this problem becoming chronic, or escalating in any way. If you have difficulty in resolving this yourself, it is important to recognise this fact: remember that all students now have an adviser, who may play a part in problem solving (below); and that the Director of Graduate Studies is also available for consultation and mediation. Only if this should fail whould you or the student consider moving to a formal complaint. Please see DRS if you wish to do so.

PIs - PhD projects please.

"PhD projects please:
We will be placing PhD Project advertisements on ‘’ during the next few weeks.  If you are considering taking a student, could you please supply a project title, 5 key words and a short description of the project (300 words or less).  Please include the skills that will be gained by the student.  Don’t worry if the project doesn’t yet have funding as we will be looking into their funding situation before inviting candidates to interview.
A prompt email response to Fiona Roby would be very much appreciated."
