Supervisors are academics with research strengths and interests similar to yours. They have extensive knowledge and experience in their field and a qualification at least equal to the degree you are undertaking.
The Find a Researcher search function (see page end) can help you find researchers with expertise in your research area.
Make sure you contact a prospective supervisor and receive in-principle approval for your research project. In order to submit evidence of this approval, you will need to include the completed Prospective supervisor form when you apply for a research degree. A potential supervisor may also be able to assist you by suggesting a project for your research.
The Office for Researcher Training, Quality & Integrity does not provide assistance to applicants seeking a supervisor.
