Thriving in Part-Time Doctoral Study is a practical guide, designed to support part-time doctoral researchers in navigating their learning experience and providing them with the tools they need to succeed in academia, alongside the work and life challenges they may be facing. Featuring eight highly practical chapters, this book covers every aspect of the part-time doctoral journey from initial planning right through to completion.

Easy to dip in and out of with realistic advice, learning points and reflective activities based on real experiences, this book:

● Reflects a diversity of voices across academic disciplines
● Features real-world examples from doctoral researchers
● Can be referred to throughout the doctoral journey

This key resource will support the reader in considering how best to access and draw on the communities of support available, get the most from a supervisory team, and build professional networks. It recognises that each student’s learning pathway is different and offers support to allow each individual to take control and make it their part-time doctorate.
