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.
