Example text

Example The University of Bath in the UK has established a postgraduate ombudsman to deal with problems relating to supervision. Candidates who feel that consultation with their supervisor or other staff had been ineffective or that such consultation is inappropriate or inadvisable are able to take issues to the ombudsman, who will try and deal with them in strict confidence and only contact staff at the request of the research student. html If supervisors are unfortunate enough to experience a breakdown in their relationship with a candidate, it is important that they should be able to direct the latter towards an independent source of advice and, potentially, of mediation.

In addition, of course, there are some responsibilities which are joint, with both the supervisor and the student having key roles to play. Information on what is expected of supervisors, what is expected of candidates, and what is expected of both is vital, and it is very useful for supervisors to go through supervisor and candidate handbooks matching the topics and comparing their respective roles and responsibilities. Example Charles Darwin University in Australia has a Code of Conduct for Supervision which sets out the responsibilities of staff and students side by side so that their respective and joint responsibilities are clear, as in the short extract below.

More recent forms of PhDs include PhDs by publication and practice-based PhDs. The former is normally available only to members of staff of institutions and involves submitting a portfolio of publications along with a linking commentary. But, if the form of submission of evidence is different, institutional requirements are usually the same as for the traditional PhD, that is, that the publications make an original contribution to knowledge and understanding in the discipline (see, for example, Wilson 2002) However, in the case of practice-based PhDs, there are differences both in the form of submission and institutional requirements.
