Graduate Supervision System

GSS is being replaced next term

In Michaelmas term 2018, GSS will be replaced with Graduate Supervision Reporting (GSR) in Student Self Service (eVision for staff), and the reporting window schedule will be amended.

To allow data to be migrated from GSS to GSR ready for Michaelmas term, GSS is closing early this term, as stated in the below table.

Further information and queries:
Student Systems Support Centre will send further information about GSR to all graduate students and relevant staff during the summer, and details are on the GSR web pages.

For queries about the GSR project, email: edu-it@it.ox.ac.uk.
For queries about the current GSS system, please use the GSS contact form.

Details are on the GSR project pages.


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.

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 and DGS for review. Additionally, subject administrators, college advisors, college administrators and scholarship and funding administrators are able to view reports.

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 supervisee, and policies for support for new supervisors:
