This study was conducted amongst final stage masters' research students at one Cambodian university. The study reveals a strong self-belief in their capacity to conduct research which will be taken by many of them into their own university teaching. Cambodian masters students have limited opportunities to experience teaching or research skills development from academic staff that has been informed by experience and knowledge gained from outside Cambodia. The danger of recycling into next generations of scholars the current limited research skills learning can be addressed by increased opportunities to experience approaches to learning beyond those currently available. The strongly positive self-belief amongst these future researchers and academics provides an energy that can be the basis for growth and development when paired with expanded learning experiences provided outside the current Cambodian higher education sphere.
