Managing your relationship with your supervisor (for postgraduates)


In this interactive workshop we will look at what can contribute to making the relationship between a postgraduate student and their supervisor a successful one.

We will cover the common difficulties that arise in this particular relationship by looking at: how to manage expectations; how to develop awareness of personal relationship styles; and how to develop assertive communication skills.

Come and join us if you want an opportunity to increase your understanding of your own difficulties and think about new ways of managing them through sharing experiences and insights with other postgraduate students.
