AM I ELIGIBLE TO BECOME A SeNSS SUPERVISOR?

Primary supervisors are normally expected to have supervised to completion. If not, suitable mentoring arrangements will need to be in place.

Second supervisors who have not yet supervised to completion can normally be mentored by the primary supervisor.

 

WHAT IS DISTINCT ABOUT SUPERVISING A SeNSS STUDENT?

SeNSS students must:

  • complete a SeNSS Training Needs Analysis (TNA) as well as their institution's own TNA.

  • attend the Winter Induction event in the first year and the Summer Conference each year.

  • ensure that their research methods training is compliant with SeNSS criteria. Any gaps in their required training should be addressed in the first year of study.

SeNSS students and supervisors are to be encouraged to make active use of SeNSS's research and training networks.

SeNSS students have access to additional funds to cover fieldwork and overseas visits, see SeNSS Funds and Policies page.

Supervisors must submit reports as and when necessary upon request.

The guidance document for supervisors is available here.

CAN I APPLY FOR SeNSS FUNDING?

SeNSS supervisors and other academics in SeNSS institutions can apply for funds (e.g. SeNSS Student Cohort Development Fund, further details will appear here soon) to develop new training courses and to attend SeNSS events.

SeNSS supervisors may develop projects for the Supervisor-Led Collaborative Studentship Competition.

 

CAN I CO-SUPERVISE ACROSS SeNSS INSTITUTIONS?

Yes, this is actively encouraged where feasible.

 

HOW CAN I GET MORE INVOLVED WITH SeNSS?
