Allocation of projects and supervisors to students

Allocation of projects and supervisors to students

The process by which students are allocated to projects and supervisors should be made clear to all applicants through the school website or in printed form. The approaches will vary across schools depending on their resources. Students would be normally required to indicate preferences for a particular project/supervisor; the projects are then allocated on the basis of the students’ preferences, students’ marks, and resources required to successfully complete the project.

For the Minor Thesis enrolment, the School/Department’s Research Degrees Committee (or equivalent) will approve the supervisor and thesis topic. The academic/main supervisor requires level 1 supervision training through Monash Graduate Research, supervision and research experience.
