Consultation sessions for research supervisors (45 minutes)

If you need help with a particular issue or research software, a free 45-minute consultation session with Dr Lyn Lavery from Academic Consulting will be helpful. Consultations are for research supervisors - either together with your postgraduate research student or by yourself - to work through qualitative and mixed methods projects.

Booking a consultation session

Supervisors need to book a session through the the Academic Consulting calendar on TUIA (AUT's staff intranet).
