It can be incredibly difficult to express problems with your monitoring. Your superiors are your champions, mentors and future referees, so of course you don`t want to mess up relationships. But at the end of the day, if your supervision doesn`t work for you, it`s in everyone`s interest to clarify it, including your superiors and the university, because your success thinks about it. Therefore, if your surveillance relationships are not what they should be, don`t be afraid to work (diplomatically) to find a solution. Most relationships sometimes need a vote. If your supervisory relationship might need a little work, the first step is to try to talk openly, calmly and honestly with your supervisor. If you`ve tried to do this (or the problems are that you don`t want to address them directly), you can talk to your faculty`s graduate team to set up mediation or resolve complaints.

You can also get professional advice from the health, counselling and wellness centre.

Be sure to check the student supervisor agreement from time to time. It is important that the agreement is not forgotten and that you and your superior are on the right track.
The agreement can be adjusted later, but try not to make any significant changes. Notification of important changes in the subject of theses. Sending a thesis project to your superiors is always a little scary.
