A PhD rollercoaster: A diary of the ups and downs of being a doctoral student

What's it really like to do a PhD? There are lots of books of the 'how to' variety for organising yourself, dealing with supervisors, and writing your thesis. But what about the emotional journey, and the changes to your health, social life, and your relationships with those closest to you? What about all the mistakes you make while trying to figure things out? And what if you're not sure about life as an academic, what then?

Read about the tears, tantrums and TV habits that led to Nilam passing with no corrections and taking a leap of faith at the end of her PhD rollercoaster.

Reviews of A PhD rollercoaster:

'I think this book is going to be a source of comfort to a lot of people at a very stressful time in their lives.' Dr Matt Greenwood-Nimmo, University of Melbourne.

'This diary captures beautifully the psychological highs and lows, rewards and frustrations of doing a Phd. It challenges some academic conventions and the restrictions they can place on the student. This is balanced with practical suggestions such as 'read outside of your discipline' and explore whether you want to be a researcher or an academic as this will influence the decisions you make. There is an overall tone of optimism that even when the 'going may be tough' completing a Phd is a positive personal and professional experience that will help you influence and create your professional future.' Dr Elaine McNichol, University of Leeds, UK.

'This well-written, candid and engaging account of one person's PhD journey should prove a valuable resource for current PhD students, individuals considering doctoral study, and those responsible for the supervision, professional development and pastoral care of PGRs. I found myself identifying with several of the experiences and emotions, some of which are not always easy to 'own-up-to' as a research student. I wish this book had been available when I was doing my PhD.' Dr Caroline Hodges, University of Bournemouth, UK.

'This diary provides a real insight into the personal and emotional journey that PhD researchers go through. The highs and the lows of the learning, the slog of the process itself, the points of elation and confidence followed by the near the feelings of despair and of worthlessness. But in the end there is resolution and it all makes sense. If this all sounds rather like a Shakespearean play, then that is what it is like and the PhD student is the main actor. Sometimes in control and marvellous, sometimes the plot and the lines are lost, but always on a journey of discovery, mainly of self. Nilam, because yes dear reader, she made it, has written a thought-provoking, honest and also humorous book that should be compulsory reading for every PhD candidate and student. All PhD life is here.' Prof. Anne Gregory, University of Huddersfield, UK.

'A PhD Rollercoaster should be mandatory reading for PhD students across disciplines! By cracking the lid on the often opaque and intertwined social, emotional, physical, and professional challenges of completing a PhD, this book provides a platform to think about doing academia differently, in more healthful ways. Nilam so artfully (and delightfully humorously) uses her own personal diary kept throughout the course of her PhD to draw out insights and perspective that will no doubt be useful to anyone embarking on the PhD journey, as well as those guiding students through it.' Dr Stephanie Coen, Queen's University, Canada.

'An invaluable insight into the doctoral journey that is at times poignant, hilarious, real and informative. The diary extracts add colour to a process that is often viewed as an exercise in cerebral gymnastics, whilst the narrative speaks to the uniqueness of each person's journey on the route to PhDdom. A must read for anyone thinking of signing up for doctoral study.' Annisa Suliman, Leeds Beckett University,

Club College: Why So Many Universities Look Like Resorts

Club College is a chapter excerpt from Change.edu coming out October 18, 2011.

On college campuses nationwide, luxury and learning go hand-in-hand, keeping the price tag for higher education out of reach for many Americans. Education innovator, and chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc., Andrew S. Rosen examines today's resort-style campus, providing inspiring solutions for stopping the spending spirals and making college affordable for all.



Despite the financial crunch, many American universities have become surprisingly lavish over the past decade, providing state-of-the-art recreation facilities, bistro-style dining, spectacular residence halls that rival fine hotels, and "free" amenities such as Kindles, not to mention multi-million-dollar stadiums and coaches' salaries starting in the high six figures. Showcasing these extraordinary campuses, "Club College" captures the new economic models of higher education, which often divert funds from academics to gain a competitive edge in attracting an elite group of students. On this fascinating tour, Andrew S. Rosen proposes bold new alternatives that focus our nation's dollars on learning.

Poised to spark a dialogue about our nation's higher education system, "Club College" makes the classroom the centerpiece of college once again, opening doors to careers for a broad range of talented individuals--arguably our greatest economic asset.



Harvard Envy: Why Too Many Colleges Overshoot

Harvard Envy is a chapter excerpt from Change.edu coming out October 18, 2011.



Exploring the limitations of the exclusive, tradition-bound world of higher education, innovator Andrew S. Rosen, chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc., delivers a vision for making a world-class college experience available to students of all backgrounds.



Little is known about John Harvard, who bequeathed his books and £779 to a fledgling college on the Charles River in the 1630s, but the institution that bears his name has become the gold standard for universities worldwide. Tracing this fascinating history, and the history of American higher education overall, "Harvard Envy" raises important questions about the effect of super-elite campuses on America's educational landscape. Just as Congress hotly debated whether to approve land-grant colleges in the nineteenth century, opening the doors of higher education to farmers, we face a competitive new demand for a highly educated workforce. Yet many colleges continue to insist on limiting access, and many college applicants continue to believe that exclusive institutions deliver the highest quality.



With an eye-opening examination of the U.S. News and World Report college rankings and other barometers, "Harvard Envy" takes an enlightened look at how universities allocate resources and talent. Offering an inspiring alternative to the Ivory Tower playbook, Andrew S. Rosen presents a bold, cost-effective new vision for a truly competitive higher education system that serves both individual and national interests.
