Overview

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.

David has worked in higher education for over 10 years, teaching on a range of programmes of study – at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

He has been a researcher for a number of years – working with a number of public and private sector organisations – and has undertaken a variety of research projects funded by a variety of sponsors.

In 1997 he moved to the University of Cambridge, Institute of Education and provided research support and administration to a nationally funded project to assess and evaluate the user-friendliness of the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice. In 1998 David progressed to a Research Officer post at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), and worked on a wide range of education-related research projects. From 1999 to present David has been primarily associated with the University of Leeds, working variably as a researcher, programme/materials developer and lecturer.
