Students will receive a report of their termly supervision from their supervisor. Supervision reporting is controlled by a timetable with automatic email notifications and reminders. Submitted reports are immediately available to the student, supervisor. Additionally, subject administrators, college advisors, college administrators and scholarship and funding administrators are able to view reports.
Student tutorials are generally more academically challenging and rigorous than standard lecture and test format courses, because during each session students are expected to orally communicate, defend, analyze, and critique the ideas of others as well as their own in conversations with the tutor and fellow-students.
As a pedagogic model, the tutorial system has great value because it creates learning and assessment opportunities which are highly authentic and difficult to fake. Students are taught by faculty fellows in groups of one to three on a weekly basis Each divisional Code of Practice for Supervision of research students offers guidance on the maximum number of students that should be supervised by each supervisor, the typical number of meetings per term between supervisor and supervise, and policies for support for new supervisors.
