As a student embarking on a postgraduate research degree you will be assigned a supervisory team, to help guide and mentor you throughout your time at the University.
Duties and Responsibilities of Supervisors are available on the Postgraduate Students' web pages.
You can also view more specific details on the supervisory arrangements on the School of the Built Environment website.
However, you are ultimately expected to take responsibility for managing your learning and will be expected to initiate discussions, ask for the help that you need and be proactive in your approach to study. Accordingly, Duties and Responsibilities of Research Candidates are available here.
