The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.
|Seminars & classes
Students will attend research group meetings where research results are presented and discussed. They will also be expected to attend journal clubs and research seminars within the University.
Students will attend University lectures relevant to their area of research.
Students will be expected to attend journal club meetings organised by the Centre for Trophoblast Research (CTR).
Students may be asked to review literature and present to their research group/CTR Journal Club.

The student will be expected to deliver a ten minute presentation of their research to the departmental or research group prior to submitting a dissertation.
The supervisor will provide feedback to the student at their regular meetings. The feedback will relate to the progress the student has made as well as specific comments on their research project, following which a termly report will be submitted to the University. These reports are accessible online to students.
