PSM TITLE AND SUPERVISION
Q: How to get a PSM title and a supervisor?
The list of the offered PSM titles will be released on the first day of the semester. Please discuss with the potential supervisor and finalise the title selection. Then apply the chosen title using the form provided on the Home page. The deadline of PSM title application is on Friday of Week 2.
Q: Can I propose my own project title?
Q: Can I or my Supervisor change the project title during the course?
No. But if modification is required to accommodate the project objectives, that could be allowed. However those changes should be kept minor.
Q: Me and my Supervisor do not get along very well. Can I change my current Supervisor?
Firstly, try not to be in this unhealthy situation. If you're in PSM1, you can just withdraw course for the current semester and then re-select your preferred supervisor in the next semester.
However if you're in PSM2, it's quite complicated. Course withdrawal is not the solution since PSM2 carries your previous work from PSM1.
Our suggestions are:
- If you're the source of the problem between you and your Supervisor, change yourself.
- If your Supervisor is the source of the problem, let your Academic Advisor and us know. We will investigate the matter and suggest the final solution.
