Supervisions are at the heart of a Cambridge undergraduate education, take place within the College and are organised by the subject-specific Directors of Studies.
These are one-hour sessions between the College's subject specialist Fellows and small groups of students. They extend learning beyond lectures & practical classes, and often are able to offer detailed discussion of written work.
Supervisions are usually held weekly, and cover all the major topics covered by the course. Each supervisor writes a report for each of their students to monitor their academic progress, working alongside their Director of Studies & College Tutor.
