00 at night. For a student the ‘vanished’, absent supervisor is simply horrid, especially if the student is a part-timer who has travelled into the university at some trouble and expense. All supervisor–student pairs need firm arrangements written down, and clear cancellation arrangements. Undergraduates may never have needed an appointments diary: as a doctoral student they do. You may need to recommend buying an academic year diary, carrying it, and entering appointments. One which has lots of useful addresses in it would be a good buy.
Both were extremely busy men. As a part-time student I was loathe to take up their time. When writing or telephoning for infrequent appointments I seemed to be in rather the same position as a National Health hypochondriac with ingrowing toenails pestering a neuro-surgeon.

The coming of e-mail has revolutionized this aspect of supervision. First, it is relatively easy to e-mail a student after each meeting with a set of bullet points about what was covered, and what each of you will do before the next meeting. If the supervisor keeps a copy, there is a clear record of how carefully the supervision was done. Alternatively, the student can be made responsible for e-mailing their record of the supervision back to you with the action list. Either pattern can work well.
