As a research student, it is quite a different experience to undergraduate study, where you are part of a cohort of students. As a result you can feel quite isolated at times, as it is literally just you and your research. However, the postgraduate research student community, and the wider academic community at WGU, are very supportive and it has never failed to amaze me just how fascinated colleagues are with other people’s research.

In postgraduate research, having a great supervisory team makes a huge difference and can make the whole study experience much easier. I’ve been extremely lucky in this regard and I consider my supervisors (all very experienced psychology academics) to be second to none! One of the benefits of being a relatively small institution is the personal touch that is possible when working with tutors and supervisors. You are not a faceless number and tutors actually get to know you very well.
