In academia, the teacher–student relationship relies on research collaboration, and this topic is considered important in the field of higher education. In university-offered programs, research collaboration hinges on what teachers and students expect from each other. Teachers expect better learning outcomes from students, while students expect expertise, support, and balance between creativity and criticism during their study period. This literature review-based research study explores teacher–student research collaboration where teachers and students interact with each other. Research articles written in the last five years were accessed from university databases for this study. This research work highlights and provides guidelines to competent authorities of higher educational institutions and research experts on the basic elements of research collaboration among teachers and students. Such guidelines promote better learning outcomes, such as academic and research achievements. The findings of this study mention teacher–student elements that help students in gaining academic achievements and teachers in publishing more work for a successful academic research career. This study sheds light on student expectations of teacher–student research collaboration. They expect expertise, support, creativity, and criticism from the teacher in academic research collaboration.
