9780335213054: The Doctoral Examination Process (SRHE and Open University Press Imprint)

The Ph.D. examination process has been “secret” and “mystifying”—but this book sheds light on the process. The authors provide students, supervisors, and examiners with constructive ways of understanding, preparing for, and undertaking the Ph.D. examination. This book is informed by four years of research on the experiences and practices of academics and candidates across disciplines and from across Britain. Valuable for everyone involved in Ph.D. examinations.
