5 Things You Learn As A Postgraduate Student

Karen Hall a Graduate Education Officer from UWA, in Perth stated in her research workshop for graduate students that she had never expected to learn these 5 things as a postgrad.

Well, as a postgrad student myself, I couldn’t agree more with her that:

  1. Being pragmatic about what you need to know & planning on how to find it out is more important than knowing everything
  2. Supervisors are not psychic – and this could be both a Good & Bad thing for you
  3. Warnings about taking breaks from staring at the computer screen & stretching do actually apply to you too
  4. Procrastination can take you to very & various strange places
  5. Finishing is as scary & daunting as not finishing
