Graduate Supervision System
The Graduate Supervision System (GSS) is used by supervisors each term to review, monitor and comment on their students' academic progress and to assess skills and training needs. Students are given the opportunity to contribute by commenting on their own academic progress.

The closing date for supervisors in the Medical Sciences Division is two weeks after the end of full term (Friday, 4pm).
Students will receive a report of their termly supervision from their supervisor. The completion of supervision reports is an essential means of monitoring student progress.
Supervision reporting is controlled by a timetable with automatic notifications and reminders. Submitted reports are immediately available to the student, supervisor and DGS for review. Additionally, subject administrators, college advisors, college administrators and scholarship and funding administrators are able to view reports.
Information entered into GSS is governed by the University's Data Protection Act.
If you are linked to an incorrect student/supervisor, please do not submit a report as a means of alerting an administrator to the error as this report will become part of the student’s permanent record in GSS. To correct a supervision relationship, contact the relevant Graduate Studies Assistant.
