Current research training policies for doctoral students in the UK place knowledgemaking and thesis-writing centre-stage and are accompanied by funding which enables training provision to be organised in the universities. This thesis focuses on the uptake of doctoral training policies in the context of the Humanities. The main aims of the research were to document and to theorise training opportunities available outside the doctoral student-supervisor relationship, in order to give empirical weight to the concept of "research training culture" (Deem and Brehony, 2000).
