Product Details

Written by academics with long experience of dealing with new postgraduate healthcare students, this helpful guide provides a much-needed overview of the practical considerations that should be taken into account when embarking on any postgraduate healthcare course.



The authors have designed the book to be an ‘easy read’ for those developing their thinking about study in general, and studying at master’s and doctoral-level specifically. The chapters can also be read independently and readers can dip into them, as they wish.



Above all, the authors hope this book will show that educational institutions care about their students in a holistic sense, as human beings. This is significant when we consider the huge impact that undertaking an educational journey in postgraduate healthcare can have on everyday life, and the accompanying need to manage the changes it brings. They strongly believe that long-term education should be seen as an integral part of life, and not something that exists separately from the individual’s normal existence.


Contents include:

  • Managing expectations in postgraduate education
  • Managing work/life balance in postgraduate academic study
  • Postgraduate-level study skills
  • Work-based learning in postgraduate health curricula
  • Constructing a thesis or dissertation
  • Disseminating academic work
