We are committed to maintaining high standards in doctoral supervision. Each PhD candidate is assigned a team of up to three supervisors headed by a BTS faculty member. The other two supervisors will be faculty members at one of the BTS institutions; one of the two may be from an external institution. Candidates meet frequently with their supervisors, both according to a formal work plan with a timetable for submitting sections of the PhD thesis and as needed for general guidance and discussion. The goal is to identify candidates’ strengths and weaknesses in order to provide individual support to best suit each candidate. In addition, by presenting their work in several colloquia during their three years of study, our PhD students have the opportunity to get feedback from different faculty members which complements that of their supervisors.
