Ask Get In about the possibility of Changing your Academic Adviser /Supervisor

Yes, it is possible to change your academic advisor or supervisor during your program. Each university has its own unique process which must be followed in order to do this. 

However, before you decide to change supervisors, you must think deeply about how to manage the relationship with your existing supervisor. The academic community is a very small one and if you part with your supervisor on unsavory terms, it might be difficult for you to find another supervisor.

It is advisable to follow your school's procedure and have a confidential discussion with the director of your graduate program.
