A research masters or doctoral degree has long been the passport to the academic community. This is still true today, despite the many changes experienced by universities around the world. Yet it is often hard to find practical guidance for what it usually the most challenging project a student can tackle. How to Get a Research Degree breaks down the mystique surrounding major academic research projects. It shows how to develop a topic, manage the research and writing process, balance personal and professional life, and use the degree to further a career. The book addresses the requirements of different disciplines and the needs of different groups of students. How to Get a Research Degree provides the information you need to ensure they complete your research degree successfully. 'How to Get a Research Degree offers insight, instruction and inspiration, and it does so without minimising the rigours of graduate study...[It] provides a great service to students.' Abigail Lipson, American University, Washington DC 'Commendable for its scope, clarity and brevity, it will repay in a single week the few hours it takes to read.' David Rabuenheimer, Oxford University
