Five Factors for PhD Success: Some Research-Based Suggestions - Meegan Hall (Victoria University of Wellington)

If we expect PhD theses to be evidence-based - why not a presentation about PhD completion? This short talk presents five factors that, according to recent international and local research, appear to impact on doctoral success. How do they apply to Māori PhD candidates? If forewarned is forearmed, this presentation will help to identify some potential obstacles for Māori doctoral students to look out for and suggest some mitigating strategies.

He Aratohu Tuhi - Marie Waaka (Te Wānanga o Raukawa)

Because Te Wānanga o Raukawa aspires to being a tikanga Māori institute it was obvious that a specialised definitive guide to writing conventions and essay writing guide for students needed to be designed.
