Doctoral students worldwide experience various dilemmas in the course of their studies. This paper sought to establish ways in which these dilemmas can be reduced. The objectives of this paper were to: Identify factors that contribute to doctorial students' dilemmas, and roles of students, identify specific areas of challenges in writing the theses, and establish ways that could improve the supervision process. The study conducted a literature review analysis which showed that doctoral students are a diverse group of learners who come to the university with no idea of what is expected of them and the need to establish these dilemmas.
