Supervisor of the Year Awards


SUPRA Supervisor of the Year Awards aim to promote, recognise and reward excellence in Higher Degree by Research supervision. We acknowledge the valuable efforts and contributions of supervisors in supporting and nurturing their research candidates. The awards are exclusively driven by students, as both nominators and judges.

The Supervisor of the Year Awards recognise supervisors of all postgraduate research students, including master’s by research, Master of Philosophy, PhDs and other doctoral candidates.

How to nominate your supervisor

Nominations for the awards open each year around June and remain open for around 3 months. The opening of nominations will be advertised here, in our weekly newsletter – Grad Post – and in the University’s Student News.
