The proposed study aims to develop an understanding of the skills and knowledge that students are required to develop over the course of doctoral research. This includes the knowledge and skills required to complete their research, as well as those required to become employable and/or established within their discipline. Through collating the perspectives of a sample of academics responsible for doctoral supervision across the discipline areas at the University of Hertfordshire the research will develop an understanding of where these skills and knowledge sets converge across disciplines. This enables conclusions to be drawn concerning opportunities for interdisciplinary research training and supervision, which in turn may be of broad use to both the university and wider sector in strategically addressing skill gaps and promoting interdisciplinary engagement.
