Surviving Your Thesis is an invaluable resource for those undertaking a higher degree research qualification, as it describes clearly the challenges and complexities of successfully engaging in both the research process and thesis writing.

Taking a highly practical approach and tone, it covers all of the common problems facing every researcher working on a project or dissertation, and guides readers in both a helpful and challenging way. Issues covered include choosing a topic, quantitative and qualitative analysis and the ethics of research as well as more personal issues such as the psychological and emotional aspects of research projects, writers' block, energy levels and studying in another culture.

Drawing from the authors' many years of experience guiding students towards a successful end, this book is helpful for those already undertaking research projects and those deciding what is the right route for them.
