Reflections on my PhD journey so far!- An international student perspective

Daisy Nwaozuzu

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    The PhD journey is an important transition in a student’s life. It can be an unpredictable trip due to the many uncertainties involved in the long winding journey. From an international student’s perspective, the uncertainties can be doubled as it involves both academic challenges and life transitions. Some of these challenges include the time requirement, the rigorous and focused research process, academic writing, publication requirement, conference presentation and successfully finishing the thesis through the doctoral defence. It’s a change in environment, course structure and rigour that demands special attention for the benefit of my future success in life. This poster will display my PhD journey so far with special highlights of the challenges and opportunities facing international doctoral students in conducting research within an international context.
