Description - The Essential Guide to Postgraduate Study by David Wilkinson

"To do justice to the postgraduate journey as experienced by the students, quotations and anecdotes from the author's own research ...are drawn upon. These anecdotes provide vivid insights into the postgraduate experience, thereby livening up the text and providing some solace to those facing similar issues in their postgraduate existence' - Education and Training Journal For anyone embarking on postgraduate study, this is an indispensable guide. Packed with hands-on advice and examples from students themselves, David Wilkinson provides: - Up-to-date information on developments in postgraduate study; - Guidance on where and how to apply; - Advice on constructing effective research proposals, with examples of successful submissions; - Help with developing an academic writing style and advice on how to get published. While each consecutive chapter develops and builds upon its predecessor, the book has been designed to be easy to 'dip into' to help resolve a problem or examine an issue of relevance to a particular stage of the process. Detailed yet highly accessible, The Essential Guide to Postgraduate Study is a 'must-have' resource for prospective postgraduates, current postgraduates and anyone interested in better understanding postgraduate study in UK universities and colleges.
