You will be assigned a supervisor when you enter the programme. In addition, when preparing your materials for consideration to upgrade from MRes to PhD status, you will be assigned two assessors who will read that material and judge your progress. Normally one will then continue to act as your second supervisor. They will be available for informal consultations and prepared to take over supervision if, for example, your supervisor takes sabbatical leave. Students can make formal arrangements for dual supervision, either with two members of their track faculty group or with someone from a different department.
If you are interested in contacting a member of faculty regarding your application or supervision options please direct your enquiry to the PhD Office at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to assist you in identifying the most suitable member of staff.
