Exploring the Experience of Ten Australian Honours Students
Allan, Catherine
Higher Education Research and Development, v30 n4 p421-433 2011
Honours study is viewed as a transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study and/or to enhanced career prospects. In Australia, Honours is usually an adjunct to the standard undergraduate degree. This paper provides an ethnographic study of 10 Australian Honours students. Seeing their experience through their reflections, in their own voices, reveals that Honours may be more than transitional--these students were transformed personally. Such emotionally charged transformations require academics to reflect on the best forms of support for Honours students. (Contains 1 figure.)
