Supervisory Excellence Awards
A key function of The Graduate School is to support and promote supervisory excellence and thereby contribute to the overall postgraduate experience and culture within the University. The annual Graduate School Supervisory Excellence Awards celebrates PhD supervisors from across the University, nominated by current students who think they should be recognised for excellence in this area.
Shortlisting for PhD Supervisory Excellence Awards has now commenced!
The best supervisors are truly transformative, so I would like to invite you now to nominate those who you feel fit the bill.
Now in its fourth year, the annual Graduate School Supervisory Excellence Awards celebrates PhD supervisors from across the University who YOU think should be recognised for excellence in this area.

All you need to do is to write a brief paragraph of 250-350 words on why you would like to nominate your supervisor.

Nominations can only be made PhD students.
Nominations can be submitted by individuals or by groups of supervisees
Supervisors nominated must be currently employed by the University and must have supervised students to completion
Students who had previously nominated supervisors for the recent Staff Excellence Awards are particularly encouraged to resubmit your nomination
This year’s Supervisory Excellence Awards will be announced at a presentation ceremony on Thursday 24 May 2018 in The Graduate School
Make it clear how your nominee stands out, and make it as persuasive as possible. Don’t just say ‘this person is committed’ – demonstrate how their commitment shows and what they have achieved as a result.
Keep in mind that these awards are competitive – the more effort you put into your nomination, the more chance it has at success!
