A PhD is a globally recognized postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities and higher education institutions to a candidate who has submitted a thesis or dissertation, based on extensive and original research in their chosen field. PhD is research training leading to a professional research qualification. A PhD can be a deep, specific education in a discipline, preceding a postdoctoral period of on-the-job training.

Ph.D. can be many things: research training, springboard for specialist expertise, rite of passage, job credential ... what it means for you depends on which opportunities you seize, whether you keep an eye on `the Big Picture', what sorts of relationships you form and so on.
