1. What is it and who's it for?
Postgraduate research students* complete a monthly eVision task to record details of their supervisory meeting(s) held in the previous month. Read more here (PDF).
The task is compulsory for those on Tier 4 student visas and those funded by AHRC CHASE and recommended for all others*.
* excluding those based at the Norwich Bioscience Institutes and the University of Suffolk and ClinPsyD students NOT on a Tier 4 student visa.
2. Step-by-step user guides
|Guide for students (PDF)||Guide for supervisors (PDF)|
|From the Student Home Page click 'Personal and course details' to access online tasks:||If you are puzzled at receiving an email at the start of the month but find no online task(s) to do - this will come once your supervisee has completed their task. The email lets you know who you should be expecting online tasks from.|
3. How to access eVision
- Directly with this link: https://evision.uea.ac.uk/
- Or by clicking on the eVision link on The Portal 'home' page (top right) - see below:
4. DON'T LOSE YOUR ANSWERS!
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.

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.
