'This is an exemplary book... I would recommend it to anyone involved in giving advice to UK students intending to undertake postgraduate study' - ESCalate
This accessible 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.
