Working for a Doctorate
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In stark contrast to the undergraduates, new PhD students often find no framework for study, few deadlines and little peer support. This text addresses the problems of the research process, such as finance and time-management and offers practical guidance and specialist advice to both students and their supervisors. The authors had a long experience of tutoring PhD students and present case studies of current and ex-PhD students. They explore issues such as gender, culture and the fundamental nature of the PhD. The book should be of interest to anyone studying, supervising or contemplating a doctoral degree in the humanities or social sciences.
