Questions and answers

The questions in this section (organized on the left, with a section for Supervisees and a section for Supervisors) came from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and supervisors. The answers were formulated by a group of senior academics at Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. 

The majority of this website contains advice to help prevent problems and ensure mutually rewarding experiences, so if you are having problems you can do more than read the Q&As; you can also learn some strategies for improving your graduate education in the future by reading some of this website's other important pages, such as Discussing expectations, Avoiding delays, The work-life balance, and Starting out.
