Formatted abstract
Regular readers of ARENA will be aware that over the past few years there has been a steady flow of comments and letters relating to the training of graduate students. It seems generally to be agreed that these students have particular problems that most probably result from the supervising faculty's assumption that, in the vacation between graduation and enrolment on the graduate studies programme, such students quite suddenly become as intellectually mature as the faculty. In the following note, it is pointed out that asking graduate students to teach is not always to their advantage and that an imposed, rather formal approach to research design and thesis production can pay dividends.
