Ownership of Your Learning

Studying for a postgraduate degree means taking ownership of your learning and authorising your own work and its direction.

As a postgraduate student you will have the autonomy of choosing the direction of your research and making your own decisions about how you study, including how you manage your time and engage in collaboration to learn with others. This entails taking responsibility for your own decisions about your learning and being accountable to others and to yourself for the choices you make.

While this increased authority over your own learning offers exciting opportunities, it may also be challenging at times. On these pages we provide some guidance on the common challenges for students managing this transition.
