Supervisors & Mentors

Meeting mentors and finding a great supervisor for your thesis is a very personal undertaking.

We encourage potential PhD candidates to contact us directly to discuss potential pathways for meeting future supervisors or mentors.


The Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education has produced resources for teaching.

We encourage students and candidates to review them (even though they're targeted to staff and supervisors), as they can also be useful for determining if someone you are considering may be a good supervisor.

We also suggest the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health's (2009) Supporting Indigenous Researchers: a practical guide for supervisors.
