Supervisory Excellence Awards 2013/14 – Competition Now Open!

Supervisory Excellence AwardsNominations are now invited from Postgraduate Research Students, Heads of Departments/Divisions, Heads of Graduate Studies and Heads of Schools, for the 2013/14 Supervisory Excellence Awards (SEA) at King’s College London . The aim of this scheme is to recognise the important role that supervisors play in the success of their postgraduate research students, and to reward excellence in supervisory practice.

Each School/Institute at King’s may receive an award worth up to £1000, which can either be awarded to one supervisor or split between two supervisors within the same School/Institute. Winners of an award will also have the opportunity to receive recognition of their achievements at a College Graduation Ceremony.

Nominations must be submitted through an online nomination form by the deadline of Friday 13 December 2013

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 with your name, discipline, year of study & preferred workshop date.

PhD Student – Supervisor Relationship Management Seminar
