Achieving Your Doctorate While Working in Higher Education

About the eBook

Undertaking a part-time doctorate when you’re working full-time in higher education can be daunting. This guide gives you realistic and reassuring support for the complexities and challenges you might face.

Each chapter helps you map the next step in your doctoral journey, from discovering your motivations and making important decisions about where to study, to preparing for thesis submission and your viva  – and how to navigate the ‘after’ when you’ve completed your doctorate.

  • Showcases a diverse range of student experiences, with over 20 case studies of postgraduate researchers.
  • Includes practical activities and reflective questions to help you make the right decisions for you.
You can also find templates for helpful techniques, such as doing a SWOT analysis, and a collection of carefully-chosen weblinks to handy resources, such as funding information, on the book′s website.
