About this book


This book is designed to help readers to make the transition from a first degree or from the workplace to a postgraduate course. It focuses on the management of the processes involved in gaining a postgraduate qualification, rather than just outlining the mechanics of the studying and research. International in its approach, the book encourages readers to assess, in a systematic way, the transferable skills that they can develop as part of their course, an area of personal development that is of increasing importance.
