SUPERVISOR OF THE YEAR AWARD (SOYA) 2017
Thank you for your interest in this award - nominations have now closed.
 
The Selection Process

The selection criteria fall into two sections:

Section A addresses your supervisor's performance in relation to your work.

Section B addresses your supervisor's performance in relation to building a good supervisory relationship.

Excellence in both areas is required for a nominee to make the short list.
 
Should the Selection Panel and the NUPSA Executive deem the nominations received have not met the criteria, a decision may be made not to make an award for this year. The decision by the Selection Panel and the NUPSA Executive will be final, and no discussions or correspondence will be entered into with the applicants for the nominations.

PLEASE NOTE: Nominations are to be current, with details relating to the 2017 calendar year (for example, a nomination from a student who completed their degree in 2016 or before will not be accepted).
