"Students planning on graduate research in the UK (and those who advise them) will find this book a good resource to anticipate the differences in the UK educational system and how those differences wil affect their graduate studies" —Cheryl Blake Price, Florida State University
`Students planning on graduate research in the UK (and those who advise them) will find this book a good resource to anticipate the differences in the UK educational system and how those will affect their graduate studies.' - NACADA Journal
Offers a practical and helpful guidebook both for students and supervisors. It is recommended for research students at the early stages of their research studies, because it provides a thought-provoking account of the different aspects of post-graduate research. Additionally, it can be a useful tool and resource pack for advanced research students who want to think about viva and career options after the completion of the PhD...a useful addition to the growing literature of books on post-graduate research.
This text has been written well and Stephen Potter has provided a well, concise and clear piece of work. It provides information to all aspects of postgraduate research and I particularly like how it includes the different sections from scoping your research to the viva. Postgraduate students will find this text beneficial at any point of their research.
A useful resource enabling students to explore and participate in postgraduate research encountering PGD, MA and PhD levels. The use of activity boxes is useful for testing the students understanding of the content.
A good guide for any postgraduate research
This is a very well structured and written book. The exercises and the answers to those exercises are a very effective method to ensure the reader engages with the book rather than skimming across its surface.
Whilst this is applicable for various PG studies the text content supports PhD studies in particular.
A very useful collection of relevant material - codifies material in earlier publications and introduces new.
Relevant to students on a range of modules and especially those doing individual projects.
Well-structured and articulated.
A well laid out text that addresses key aspects of postgraduate study. The supporting DVD and website provide valuable resources and guidance for students and tutors and represent excellent value for money.
