This paper examines the discourse of Doctoral supervisors and Doctoral candidates that was derived by a series of in-depth interviews with these stakeholders. It explores the metaphors used by supervisors and candidates to describe their roles within the research award process. The analysis of this discourse can be used as a heuristic device to encourage reflection and learning.
