The leap between the undergrad and postgrad can sometimes come as a surprise, especially if you've been out of education for a while. Postgraduate study involves applying skills and knowledge in a more sophisticated and advanced way than was required during your degree.
Your Guide to Successful Postgraduate Study demystifies some of the expectations of post-grad study and outlines tools and strategies for developing skills that will improve your work throughout the whole of your post-graduate course.
This book advises you on how to:
decide what to read, and how best to read it
produce engaging outputs in writing or speaking that are convincing and engaging
pursue academic arguments and show evidence of research/reading
maximize your employability after graduation.
Get ahead of the game and equip yourself with the skills needed to supercharge your postgraduate work!

What Reviewers Are Saying
To me, it appears evident that the authors are writing not just with their professional expertise, but their own first-hand experience of postgraduate life...always helpful but never patronising and, above all, looking to reassure the reader that the power to successful postgraduate study is in their (your) hands. Relatable, helpful, reader-friendly. At just 124 pages, this guide is a quick, accessible read that provides relevant and practical advice which will be an undoubted help for anyone considering postgraduate study regardless of discipline or level. Highly recommended. -- Robert Davies * The Cognitive Psychology Bulletin * This guide really resonated with my experiences as a postgraduate student. Packed with insights into the academic world and the study environment, the authors provide clear strategies for overcoming the challenges of postgraduate life. The case studies help to contextualise approaches in the book, helping me to think how I might use them in the real world. -- Callum Blackmore This is a very readable book for students who are embarking on postgraduate study for the first time and those returning to university. The text is clearly signposted throughout, highlighting the process from preparation to writing up and submitting. The authors have provided excellent advice underpinned with student examples. -- Martyn Walker
