Research Supervisors

Supervisors play an integral role in ensuring that a research degree students’ work meets the standards of the Sydney College of Divinity and the academic discipline. Supervisors provide consistent and reasonable support to help students at every stage, from formulation of their research projects through establishing methodologies and discussing results, to presentation and possible publication of dissertations.

Students are advised to find a supervisor who will complement their research and learning style. This will help to ensure the success of this relationship as it is one of the important factors contributing to the successful completion of the degree.
