Doctor of Philosophy
PhD graduate Andrew Cashin is now the President of the Australian Nurse Practitioners' Association. He was able to combine his counselling work with his research into the experience of parenting children with autism for his PhD. "I chose to study a PhD at UTS because the experience of studying here in the past was so positive and had great benefits. Lots of reading, thinking, and critical appraisal of ideas through supervision has broadened my perceptions and refined my clinical practice". "The decision to undertake a research degree was not at all daunting. UTS provides a lot of support. The library staff are fantastic. Acquisition of information is made so easy which is important for my studies". "Graduate school staff at UTS are extremely supportive and helpful. They have also assisted with a valuable scholarship application". "Faculty academic and support staff are always friendly and accessible. As a student you do not feel like a visitor but part of the faculty and my supervisors maintain a sense of humour through the challenging process of keeping me on track".
