The Epigeum online course Supervising Doctoral Studies is available in the UWA Learning Management System (LMS). Supervising Doctoral Studies includes modules on selecting candidates, approaching supervision, managing progress, and preparing for examination. The course can be accessed through self-enrolment in the UWA LMS organisation, Supervisor Professional Development. Please contact Dr Jo Edmondston if you would like detailed instructions on how to access the unit. External supervisors without a Pheme account should also contact Jo for guest access to this unit.

To complement the Supervising Doctoral Studies module, is a series of videos to provide additional advice about UWA Thesis examination and the viva voce. This series of three videos covers examination of HDR students at UWA, including the viva voce for PhD students, formatting a thesis a series of papers, and management of adverse examination.
