Postgraduate Research Code of Practice
Introduction to the Code of Practice
The University of Glasgow recognises that research students make a vital contribution to our institution’s research output, culture and international reputation as a competitive, research-led university.
It is important to us, therefore, that postgraduate research students:
- receive the highest quality of support from University staff;
- have access to the correct information to facilitate the satisfactory completion of their research;
- carry out their responsibilities appropriately; and
- be aware of the roles and responsibilities of their supervisors and other University staff.
The University has agreed that some aspects of a postgraduate research student’s experience are common across all disciplines. The University’s Graduate Schools have therefore developed a Postgraduate Research (PGR) Code of Practice, which sets out guidelines to students and staff about the most effective practice for each stage in a postgraduate student’s life. These are the expected standards that all staff and students should maintain.
