You have primary responsibility for the success of your research project. So it’s important to make sure you have all the information you need, starting with the Guide to graduate studies. In addition to walking you through your first steps at university, it also tells you how to approach each stage of your academic journey.
Open communication with your research supervisor is key to success. It’s normal for your opinions to differ from time to time or for misunderstandings to occur, but it’s important to be able to talk about them.
In the event of a dispute, or if you are having trouble communicating, notify your program director. If you have a complaint about supervision, you can contact the Student Life and Academic Services (in French).
