Supervisions for Computer Science courses
Supervision, the teaching of undergraduates in small groups, is one of the main pillars which support learning at Cambridge. Supervision is the responsibility of the Colleges; the Director of Studies in each College schedules supervisors for all his or her students taking Parts IA and IB of the Tripos. The arrangements for Part II are detailed below. Part III courses are designed not to require supervisions, but Directors of Studies have the power to arrange supervision if this is deemed helpful.
Organisation of Part II supervisions by the Computer Laboratory
The Computer Laboratory co-ordinates supervisions and other auxiliary teaching for Part II on behalf of the majority of the Colleges.
There is an overview document that is handed out during the briefing session.
For courses in which there are supervisions, sign up will take place in the William Gates Building between 9:00 and 14:00 on the day of the third lecture of each course. The sign-up sheet will be on the table outside the student administration window.
