Art and design practice-based PhDs have been developing in the United Kingdom for the past 15 years, yet there has been almost no research on how these degrees are experienced by students and their supervisors. This article sets out to remedy this lacuna by portraying some of the problems encountered by students in working toward such degrees and some of the solutions they arrive at with the aid of their supervisors. The article is based on extensive qualitative interviewing of both groups.
