Pitfalls, highlights and the path to successful postgraduate study

The Auckland chapter invites you to listen to successful women talk about the realities behind postgraduate study – the pitfalls, the highlights and the inevitable life after studying.

If you have any worries or concerns about anything to do with postgraduate study, network with others who are, or have been, in the same situation and discover you are not alone!
