Dissertation Supervisors

University College of Estate Management

Work can be undertaken remotely/at home

Role Summary

All UCEM BSc, MSc and MBA programmes require students to complete a final year dissertation and this is entitled the “project” module. In developing their research students need to be guided by specialist supervisors with relevant qualifications and experience.

As a dissertation supervisor you will be involved in supporting one or more students giving one to one tutoring via the virtual learning environment (VLE), providing commentary, feedback and assessment throughout the research process. Your work will be undertaken remotely online; this enables a uniquely flexible work environment which can be fitted around any existing employment or other commitment.

Training and pay rates

Training in supervision online will be provided for all applicants. Pay rates are calculated per student and you may define the capacity and the number of students you wish to support.

Second marking the work of students supported by other supervisors is also available as a discrete tutoring role; pay rates again are calculated by student.

Person specification details

We are seeking an experienced academic supervisor who is a subject specialist and we also welcome applications from research methodology specialists from outside the specialist subject areas listed. In addition, because the students at UCEM are distributed across the globe we also welcome applications from area studies specialists.

Appropriately qualified and experienced practitioners are also encouraged to apply and training will be provided.

We are also keen to hear from PhD students.
