How to find a supervisor

For entry into our graduate programs (except MEd Coaching Studies, whose students are assigned a graduate supervisor by the school), you need a faculty member to agree to supervise you in your specific area of research.

Once you choose a faculty member whose interests align with yours, contact them directly to discuss possible supervision. Alternatively, you can contact our  who will help connect you with a potential supervisor.
