Directors of Studies

  • Main page content

    Each student has a Director of Studies, who is a senior member of the University (and usually a Fellow of Murray Edwards College) and who oversees your academic career while at Cambridge. They will monitor and discuss your progress with you, arrange your supervisions and can advise you on issues relating to your course.

    You can expect to see your Director of Studies at the start and end of every term, and they will discuss your supervision reports in these meetings.

    If you need to see your Director of Studies at any other time, you should arrange an appointment via email.
