The International Student's Guide

Additional resources:

September 2006 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
  This book provides essential guidance for all students who are thinking of studying for a postgraduate qualification in Britain.

Alongside detailed information about the British university system (from the application process to the viva) Nicholas and Rosalind Foskett provide readers with an introduction to other essential pastoral and practical aspects to study in Britain: Immigration regulations; living and working in Britain; cultural mores and expectations of student life; finance and support systems.

Postgraduate Study in the UK: The International Student's Guide is easily accessible and is essential reading for anyone thinking about, or already enrolled on, a postgraduate course in the UK who is less familiar with the unique character of the British HE system and unfamiliar with British culture in general.

SAGE Study Skills are essential study guides for students of all levels. From how to write great essays and succeeding at university, to writing your undergraduate dissertation and doing postgraduate research, SAGE Study Skills help you get the best from your time at university.
