Maintaining your supervisor profile


What is a graduate supervisor profile?

  • A graduate supervisor profile is a key tool for recruiting potential graduate students. 
  • Profiles appear on the degree program pages listed on the Faculty of Graduate Studies' Explore Programs page. 
  • Your profile gives you space to share your research interests and state what you look for in graduate students wanting to work with you. 
  • Your profile shows which degrees and programs you can supervise. For each degree/program, you can state whether you are seeking students or unavailable.
  • The profiles also include a contact form for students to connect with you. 

Why is it important for me to have a supervisor profile?

  • Prospective students use the Explore Programs page to identify degree programs of interest. Thesis-based degree detail pages each include a list of supervisors. 
  • If your profile is not completed, it will not appear on any degree detail pages.
  • Not having a profile raises the risk that potential students may not discover you as a potential supervisor. 
  • Programs with degree detail pages that list few supervisors may find that they receive fewer inquiries or applications.

I don't have a supervisor profile; how can I get one?

  • Confirm with your Graduate Program Director or the Faculty of Graduate Studies that you have supervisor privileges for at least one degree program. Contact webgrad@ucalgary.ca to request a profile.

I have a supervisor profile, but I'm not sure how to access it.
