Research Skills Training Course ( 4/8 weeks)

Course Description

Our Cambridge tutors  (supervisors) will provide one-to-one training and supervisions to students based on their progress and academic abilities.

  2. 8-week: recommended for long assignment and big research projects such as final year project and dissertation

What are supervisions?

Tutorial arranged in a small group is called supervision in the University of Cambridge. This system of personal tuition is one of Cambridge’s greatest strengths. Supervisions provide the opportunity to explore your subject more deeply, discuss your work and ideas, and receive regular feedback. Supervisions provide the ideal environment for you to test your ideas and interests while encouraging you to develop your thinking. Supervisors are specialists in particular subject areas (they may be one of the country’s or world’s leading authorities). In this coaching service, you will have one-on-one supervision with a Cambridge supervisor. You will be assigned a supervisor depending on what you are studying.
