Teaching

One to one supervision

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

The Director of Graduate Education will set out expectations for the frequency of your supervision. This will include expectations for formal opportunities for you to gain feedback on your work and progress. Most students have regular (weekly or fortnightly) supervision meetings but the frequency of supervision may vary according to the research project and the stage of study.

Feedback

The Director of Graduate Education will ensure that all research students in the Faculty or Department (or University Partner Institution) have the opportunity to provide feedback on the content, delivery and administration of their course, and will ensure that this input is taken into account. He or she will oversee and co-ordinate periodic strategic reviews of the course. Similarly,  at the end of each term throughout your course, your supervisor will provide formal online feedback on your progress.

Assessment

Thesis

The PhD is examined by thesis (maximum of 60,000 words) and viva.

Other

All PhD students are required to undergo formal assessment (by written report and viva) at the end of their first year. If successful, the student moves from being "probationary" to being registered for the PhD and can proceed with their project.
