Research Supervisor Training

There are two types of Research Supervisor Training at UNE.

Research Supervisor Accreditation Training

This training accredits research supervisors to be Principal Supervisors in accordance with the UNE Registration of HDR Supervisors Procedures. To successfully complete accreditation training UNE academic staff must:

  • complete the Supervising Doctoral Students online module
  • attend a one day workshop at the Armidale campus.

It does not matter in which order staff undertake these two components, but both must be completed in order for staff to be considered for accreditation. Once both components have been completed, the Head of the relevant School must approve accreditation as a Principal Supervisor.

The Supervisor Accreditation Workshops have been held for 2018. Please contact to register interest for 2019 workshops.

The Supervising Doctoral Students online module may be completed at any time, and at the staff members own pace. It can be accessed via the HDR Portal in Moodle. Log into Moodle and go to the HDR Portal and click on the 'Supervising Doctoral Students' tile to begin.

If you do not have access to the HDR Portal in Moodle, please email
