Transitions into, during and out of doctoral programmes - the view from the bridge

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

This research investigates issues surrounding the transition periods for students of the Master in Research (MRes) and Professional Doctorate programmes where the profile of the student is often mature and they have re-entered the educational context after a significant break from formal study
Aim and objectives:
The aim of this study is to investigate the transition experiences of Professional Doctoral and MRes students at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and to determine what, if anything, the two programmes can learn from each other. Objectives are;
1. To critically review transition literature
2. To critically analyse data obtained through 1:1 interviews with Professional Doctorate and MREs students at GCU
3. To evaluate the findings and critically understand the effectiveness and efficiency of these two Research Frameworks’ transition arrangements
