In stark contrast to undergraduates, new PhD students often find no framework for study, few deadlines and little peer support.
Working for a Doctorate:
* Addresses the problems of the research process, such as finance and time-management
* Offers practical guidance and specialist advice to both students and their supervisors
* Is written by a team of experts who have had a long and successful experience of tutoring PhD students
* Contains case studies of current and ex-PhD students
* Explores issues such as gender, culture and the fundamental nature of the PhD.
The book will be a vital guide and companion to anyone studying, supervising or contemplating a doctoral degree in the humanities or social sciences.
