About the Award
Each year the Graduate School awards Supervisory Excellence Awards (SEA) designed to recognize 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.
