Graduate Supervision SystemThe 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. Divisions, departments and colleges use the completion of supervision reports as an essential means of monitoring student progress. The supervision reporting process is controlled by a structured timetable with automatic notifications and reminders. Once reports are submitted they 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. Please note that any information entered into GSS is governed by the University's Data Protection Act.
*The closing date for supervisors in the Medical Sciences Division is two weeks after the end of full term (Friday, 4pm).
Updating/correcting supervision relationships
If you are linked in GSS to an incorrect student/supervisor, please do not submit a report as a means of alerting an administrator to the error, as the text you submit will become part of the student’s permanent record in GSS. Instead, to correct/update a supervision relationship, contact the relevant Graduate Studies Assistant
