What are the roles and responsibilities of the supervising professor, thesis advisor and doctoral student? How to make the most of your supervision and how to prepare your supervision plan? What if you need to make changes to your supervision arrangements? How about handling challenging situations?

There will be a general presentation about the guidelines and instructions, and we will also hear personal experiences of supervision and advising from a professor and a doctoral researcher. Time will be reserved for discussion and questions too.

The presentation will be in English, but you can ask questions also in Finnish.
