This paper discusses how codes of practice might improve completion rates in design research. The paper is structured into main parts of: What is design research?; problems experienced in research supervision; and how codes of practice might improve completion rates. Each part includes a reflection of the information as a discussion of the issues involved for design research education. Consideration is given to the broad nature of design, the types of doctorates and the typical misconceptions faced by design research students. Suggestions are made as to how codes of practice might help to overcome these misconceptions, to support students and the supervisory team. The paper illustrates how this could support the development of design research education.
The work relates to research being developed by the Creative Design Research Group and taught on design courses, in the School of Design, Engineering and Computing at Bournemouth University

Keywords: Design, education, research, supervision, methods, codes of practice
