- Sees connections between sections of own information/data and previous studies. Benefits from guidance with synthesising information/data and ideas.
Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:
- Critically synthesises new and complex information from diverse sources**.
- Has broad vision, recognises patterns and connections beyond own discipline/research area.
