Making Supervision Work For You discusses the entire supervision process from the student's perspective, as well as considering the supervisor's viewpoint and constraints. The author covers all phases of the student's 'journey', from induction through to final completion and examination of the thesis and the viva voce. The book illustrates many of the key issues in supervision by drawing upon extensive material from recent interviews with a range of supervisors and students.
This book presents new ideas, regulations and codes of practice, and offers practical suggestions for students. It emphasizes students' experiences and needs, while also maintaining a focus on the supervisor's perspective and the demands of assessment at post-graduate level.
The book is primarily aimed at post-graduate students but will also be useful for undergraduates in their final year and equally for new or experienced supervisors.
