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.

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.
