How to select an examiner for your PhD


Some great advice on choosing an examiner for your PhD or Masters by Research has just been published on the Doctoral Writing SIG blog.

The piece is titled ‘Choosing the examiner: It’s in everyone’s interests to get students involved’ and is written by Claire Aitchison, one of Australia’s most respected researchers and practitioners in the area of doctoral education.

Claire outlines the key considerations when thinking about examiners and then lays down a four step process for considering examiners which should begin 3-4 months out from the point at which you think you’ll be submitting your thesis.

This is a must-read for all research students!!
