University Independent Advisor for Postgraduate Research Students (formerly known as the Postgraduate Research Ombudsman)

Occasionally, problems are encountered by postgraduates in connection with supervision or other issues. Such problems can usually be resolved at Department/School level either by consultation with the Director of Postgraduate Studies or the Head of Department/School. However, for cases where this appears to be ineffective or where the student considers this route inappropriate or inadvisable the University Independent Advisor for Postgraduate Research Students or Deputy University Independent Advisor for Postgraduate Research Students should be contacted. Consultations are treated in strict confidence and staff from the Department/School in question are only contacted at the request of the research student.

We hope that you will not encounter any supervision problems or other difficulties during your time at Bath, but we will endeavour to resolve any problems which you care to draw to our attention.
