An introduction and links to the information and support available to DPhil supervisors

DPhil students

Until relatively recently, doing a doctorate was probably the only preparation academics had before going on to supervise DPhil students themselves, so some supervisors may feel they lack the skills to support their student(s) fully.

In addition it is important that supervisors familiarise themselves and keep themselves up to date with University and divisional policies and processes for the Oxford doctorate.

The pages for supervisors provide information and resources for DPhil supervision, including details of the training available.
