About the Award
Each year the Graduate School awards Supervisory Excellence Awards designed to recognise and reward postgraduate supervisors for the outstanding supervision and support that they offer to research students at King’s College London.

The key criteria in selecting winners from the nominees are that they demonstrate innovation in their thinking or practice and that they support the personal development of their students towards their chosen career goal. We also expect to see evidence that the supervisor has ‘gone the extra mile’ for their students.

SuperVisions

INNOVATIVE, STUDENT-LED WORKSHOPS ON PHD SUPERVISION

PhD students across the University of London are invited to participate in a new student-led initiative about academic supervision.

Workshops will be held on 14 June and 21 June, from 10am, at Goodenough College (you are welcome to choose the workshop that suits you best).

The initiative aims to open up interdisciplinary spaces for students to reflect on personal experiences of supervision, explore the perspectives of academics, think about differences across disciplines and develop resources for other students on this theme. Attendees will take part in discussions, which are not standard ‘skills workshops’ but more an opportunity to talk about aspects of university life often left unspoken.

To register your place please email Katherine Robinson (PhD Student, Sociology) at k.a.robinson@lse.ac.uk with your name, discipline, year of study & preferred workshop date.
