How many supervisors can I have to support my higher degree by research (HDR) candidature?

The University will appoint a supervisory team that will share the intellectual, practical and administrative load for your candidature. You will be supervised by at least two University-based supervisors, one of whom is designated the principal supervisor and the other, the associate supervisor.

It is possible to have co-principal or associate supervisors from another area of the University, from another university, from industry or a relevant profession. The number of supervisors on a supervisory team will be determined by the requirements of individual candidatures and the supervisory roles/expertise required.

Visit supervision guidelines for more information.
