Media reviews

This handbook for students and their supervisors does exactly what it says 'on the tin' - it tells you how to get a PhD in a sensible, practical and informed fashion designed to debunk the myths and relieve you of any false allusions... The PhD is a challenging process and often feels more mysterious than it should be. This worthwhile offering makes the whole endeavour a much more 'open book' for the would-be Dr and comes highly recommended.
