Wolfson Graduate Studies Committee
The Director of Postgraduate Studies (Research) for the Wolfson institute is Professor Stephen Duffy and he heads a small Committee with Professor Joan Morris and Dr Charlotte Clark. Together they ensure that all PhD students are appropriately appointed and assigned a supervisor who will supervise them to the highest standards ensuring they receive all necessary training and support. The Committee will also pursue and resolve any problems arising during the course of PhD research.

On a day to day basis the Committee’s responsibilities include:

  • Approving all new registrations
  • Approving student progression at 9 and 18 months (or 18 and 36 months if part-time), after review by an expert panel
  • Ensuring all supervisors are trained, participate in periodic refresher training and are informed of all latest college guidance and policies
  • Ensuring research students undertake the required 70 hours (~2 weeks) training per year, and that it is recorded on their personal development plans
  • Ensuring all new students participate in both College and Institute induction
  • Maintaining all student records on the Student Information System

A guide to PhD procedures for the Institute (which is complementary to the College guide) is here (PDF, 40kb).
