In this talk Craig will provide a summary of his book “How to Complete a PhD”. He will identify some of the major issues students are faced with when undertaking a doctorate, and how they can be overcome. Craig will explain how to be more effective as a doctoral student including:
- The skills you need: When you have mastered the skills of research you will be ready to submit your thesis. What are these skills?
- How to manage your PhD: Many PhD candidates overrun the time expected to complete their thesis, others never complete. Project management techniques are needed to keep your thesis on track.
- What do examiners look for? Examiners look for key features in a PhD thesis. When they first get your thesis they will skim read it looking for these features. Make sure you have them!
