Notice Board

TELL YOUR STORY:
Experiences of postgraduate students – the good, the bad, and the ugly

Research Participants Wanted: Master’s and PhD students and supervisors of postgraduate students

We are looking for NWU postgraduate students and supervisors to tell us about their experience of postgraduate studying. What is most challenging and stressful about it and what helps you deal with this? What is important for your well-being and what do you need to perform optimally?

We are really interested in hearing your story. Your personal experiences can help us understand the broader situation and provide recommendations as to what can be done to help postgraduate students.

We would like to invite you for a one-hour interview on your campus at a time that is convenient for you. All information will be treated confidentially. Light refreshments will be provided.  

If you are interested in participating or if you have any questions about the study, please contact Laura Weiss at laura.weiss@nwu.ac.za.  

Kind regards
Dr Laura Weiss
Postdoctoral fellow at Optentia, Vaal Triangle Campus
