Supervisions are the defining experience of collegiate learning.


Supervisions are used as a medium through which our undergraduates will learn to:

  • work independently
  • learn with and from others
  • argue and present arguments
  • handle problems
  • question your own assumptions
  • meet deadlines


Directors of Studies' appoint supervisors and monitor the standard of both College and Faculty organised supervisions by:

  • appointing supervisors and specifying hours of teaching
  • instructing new supervisors in what is required of them including teaching courses
  • ensuring that supervisors discuss a student's problems with the Director of Studies as soon as they arise
  • monitoring spending on supervisions
