Talk in our interviews focused on how students chose their supervisors and why supervisors agreed to supervise. In some ways, the idea of “choosing” supervisors is a bit misleading as, for any particular student and their project, there will be a finite pool of possible supervisors. Sometimes that pool is very small indeed. At the same time, we found that students had quite a lot of input into this matter and so it’s worth thinking through quite carefully what (and who) would be best for you and your project. Here are some of the experiences and insights shared with us by students and supervisors, along with some guidelines for you as a doctoral student.
