LERU’s view on holistic doctoral supervision

Supervision of doctoral researchers is a central aspect of doctoral education, which is a core activity of universities, especially research-intensive ones. Doctoral researchers are key to advancing research within universities, and the global recognition of the doctoral degree reflects the unique and vitally important role of universities in society.



Doctoral supervision is about the person, not the dissertation

The authors of LERU's new paper on doctoral supervision – Dr Helke Hillebrand, director of the Graduate Academy at Heidelberg University, and Dr Claudine Leysinger, head of the Graduate Campus at the University of Zurich – discuss the challenges and rewards of nurturing the next generation of researchers.
