What to expect as a CASE supervisor

Pre-placement

  • A SWBio DTP CASE studentship agreement will be initiated by the registered university.

During the placement

  • The student’s PhD supervisor will be in contact with the student at monthly points via e-mail.  However, if there are any issues during the placement, please do contact the SWBio DTP Hub and the listed contact at the student’s registered university as soon as possible.
  • The student will receive a visit from their PhD supervisor during the placement (this is recommended to take place midway through).  As part of this the PhD supervisor will meet with the listed CASE supervisor briefly to see how the placement is progressing, suggestions for improvements and for student welfare support.  The student is responsible in arranging this visit at a time that is mutually convenient for both the CASE and PhD supervisors.
  • The student will still be undertaking their SWBio DTP training programme during their CASE placement and as such may need to attend some DTP training events.  We ask that these are taking into consideration and to allow for the student to attend.

After the placement

Students will be required to complete a BBSRC and SWBio DTP CASE report, and present their experience at our Annual Careers Conference.  Further information about these can be found on our CASE student information webpage.
