Research Supervisors

The supervisor is the key person in a research-based graduate degree program. The principal role of the supervisor is to help students achieve their scholastic potential and to chair the student’s Supervisory Committee. The Supervisor will provide reasonable commitment, accessibility, professionalism, stimulation, guidance, respect and consistent encouragement to the student. Learn more

Graduate programs have different expectations regarding prospective students contacting facult members. Some require commitment of a faculty member as supervisor prior to applying while others assign supervisors in the first year. Please review the requirements for each program in the degree listing under the heading "Admission Information & Requirements" in step 3 "Prepare Application" under "Supervision".

    Reaching Out Tips

    Complete these steps before you reach out to a faculty member!

    Check requirements
    • Familiarize yourself with program requirements. You want to learn as much as possible from the information available to you before you reach out to a faculty member. Be sure to visit the graduate degree program listing and program-specific websites.
    • Check whether the program requires you to seek commitment from a supervisor prior to submitting an application. For some programs this is an essential step while others match successful applicants with faculty members within the first year of study. This is either indicated in the program profile under "Admission Information & Requirements" - "Prepare Application" - "Supervision" or on the program website.
    Focus your search
    • Identify specific faculty members who are conducting research in your specific area of interest.
    • Establish that your research interests align with the faculty member’s research interests.
      • Read up on the faculty members in the program and the research being conducted in the department.
      • Familiarize yourself with their work, read their recent publications and past theses/dissertations that they supervised. Be certain that their research is indeed what you are hoping to study.
    Make a good impression
    • Compose an error-free and grammatically correct email addressed to your specifically targeted faculty member, and remember to use their correct titles.
      • Do not send non-specific, mass emails to everyone in the department hoping for a match.
      • Address the faculty members by name. Your contact should be genuine rather than generic.
    • Include a brief outline of your academic background, why you are interested in working with the faculty member, and what experience you could bring to the department. The supervision enquiry form guides you with targeted questions. Ensure to craft compelling answers to these questions.
    • Highlight your achievements and why you are a top student. Faculty members receive dozens of requests from prospective students and you may have less than 30 seconds to pique someone’s interest.
    • Demonstrate that you are familiar with their research:
      • Convey the specific ways you are a good fit for the program.
      • Convey the specific ways the program/lab/faculty member is a good fit for the research you are interested in/already conducting.
    • Be enthusiastic, but don’t overdo it.
