dc.description.abstract This paper focuses on generic doctoral support, the kind provided by Learning Advisors (LAs), locating New Zealand in relation to the recently established European Higher Education Area (Bologna, 1999). Paradoxically, the European Union Bologna process is firming up doctoral education in an increasingly fluid global environment by standardising degree credit ratings, promoting shared best practice and encouraging transferability of doctoral education across national borders (Bologna Process Stocktaking, 2007). In a position of relative geographical isolation, New Zealand has long been concerned to ensure that our doctorates compete internationally; what is happening in Europe as the sands shift there to redefine borders affects us. New Zealand is currently in a strong position regarding doctoral education. This paper proposes that New Zealand LAs who work with doctoral students might take advantage of the European Union Bologna Process discussion to discuss and theorise generic doctoral support. en
