Description

Each contributor to this book was given the remit: "If you could go back in time to talk with yourself when you began your studies, what advice would you give?" Hindsight is such a bonus, especially, when vying for your doctorate or postgraduate degree. Postgraduate Study in Australia: Surviving and Succeeding addresses this with advice from postgraduate students and recent graduates that will assure that you are not alone in your endeavors. This project follows similar editions that focus on Aotearoa/New Zealand, South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and is currently being replicated in Scandinavia. This down-to-earth anthology shares personal stories from postgraduate students and recent graduates, employing a practical approach and focusing on the context of postgraduate studies in Australia. This first-person approach to research about postgraduate study helps curate the current understanding, with critical reflections adding to our collective knowledge. Both prospective and current postgraduate students will find this collection insightful.

Author Biography

Christopher McMaster has been lead editor on all editions of the Survive and Succeed series. He completed a PhD in education based on a critical ethnography of developing inclusive culture in an Aotearoa, New Zealand high school. Current projects involve a text on behavior analysis from a disability studies perspective. Christopher has most recently been Assistant Professor of Education, Special Education at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. He has since returned to his adopted home of New Zealand where he teaches in the local community. Caterina Murphy freelances her academic leadership and research services through AcademicExpressNZ to tertiary institutions, individuals, schools and businesses and edits a range of much-needed textbooks for the sector. She is also Head of Enhanced Learning at Edgecumbe College. Ben Whitburn did his PhD from 2011 to 2014 somewhere between Melbourne and Madrid. Ben's thesis by publication works the intersection of disability studies and inclusive education research, by drawing on insider accounts of experience, poststructural analytics and grounded theory. Ben is an enthusiastic traveler, teacher and writer. Inger Mewburn has specialized in research education since 2005. Aside from editing and contributing to the Thesis Whisperer blog, she writes scholarly papers, books and book chapters about research students and their experiences.
