'The post graduate sector of higher education is growing with extraordinary rapidity and vitality but there is little consideration as to its nature. Is it to be an extension of undergraduate education or might it be seen in different ways? Might postgraduate students want to learn in ways that especially recognise their self-reliant capabilities? A merit of this volume is that it opens in an attractive an accessible way a space in which to address these issues. Anyone involved in designing, managing or teaching postgraduate courses will find this volume rewarding.' - Ron Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education and Consultant, Institute of Education, University of London, UK 'A comprehensive and thought-provoking review of current thinking in post-graduate education. Anyone concerned with the development and postgraduate curriculum or the delivery of courses will find their views challenged and their ideas broadened by this book' - Philip Tasker, Vice Chancellor, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK 'This timely and important collection, including chapters by a range of international contributors, helpfully addresses the challenges postgraduate education faces at a time of significant change. As such, it should appeal to a wide audience of students, practitioners and academics.' Mike Saks, Senior Pro Vice Chancellor, Universi4r of Lincoln, UK 'It is a good book and I recommend it.'
