Research Student Supervisory Meetings Research Student Supervisory Meetings

1. What is it and who's it for?

Postgraduate research students with a Tier 4 visa - or funded by CHASE - complete a monthly eVision task to record details of their supervisory meeting(s) held in the previous monthRead more here (PDF).

It is hoped that this functionality will be extended to other students during 2018.

3. How to access eVision

  • Directly with this link:
  • Or by clicking on the eVision link on The Portal 'home' page (top right) - see below:

eVision link on The Portal home page


eVision has NO autosave function and 'times-out' after 30 minutes of inactivity.

To avoid losing data if eVision times-out or crashes - especially when you are typing lots - you must save your work regularly. To help you the online tasks now have a <Store> option. You will find this button at the bottom of the screen:

<Store> saves your work but keeps you on the same screen. It does not complete and submit your task. If you wish to do that, click <Save and Proceed>. Full details are in the guidance.

You can prepare longer bits of text in Word or a text editor and paste them into the appropriate sections of the report, but still need to remember to <Store> or <Save ...> regularly. eVision has very limited formatting possibilities so you will lose most formatting from Word.

5. Further information

If you encounter any problems or there are errors in student data which come to light as a result of these changes – for example, reminders go to members of staff no longer supervising a student – please contact the appropriate PGR Service Team.
