At one point or another, every postgraduate student ponders the post-HDS (higher degree study) path. Some think about this intensively, planning every step of their path so when they do finally finish our higher degree, they have a clear sense of what the next step will be. Others undertake higher degree research with the intended purpose of gaining a significant promotion in their employment. If you are anything like me, neither of these options fit. When I graduated with my PhD, I had thought a little about post-HDS options but not too much. And I had certainly not considered this early in my studies. There were so many things to consider in deciding which path was best for me (as well as for my family). The main issue to consider, of course, was what the options actually were. In our final instalment in our discussions of postgraduate issues, I will engage with three of the main pathways and the key issues and things to think about that are associated with these pathways.
