Change of topic or supervisor

Changing your topic

From September 2015, changes to your topic no longer need to be received via a GRS form. You can now email with your supervisor's endorsement to let us know when your thesis topic changes.

Changing your supervisor

Before you change your supervisor, make time to discuss your decision with your current supervisor and consider the disruption to your research this may involve. You will need your current supervisor's agreement along with approval from your Graduate Research Coordinator and School Graduate Research Coordinator or Head of School when you apply.

You can use the Application to Vary Supervision Details form to change your supervisor details.
