Abstract

This issue of the Journal of Further and Higher Education includes selected papers from the First Postgraduate Experience Conference '97, which was held in Cape Town in December 1997. This article seeks to contextualise these papers by offering a summary of the key themes that were threaded through the conference sessions. The paper is structured according to the subtitle of the conference into three sections: Approach; Access; and Management. 'Approach' considers the student approach to postgraduate study, and in particular focuses on the student experience and the student-supervisor relationships. 'Access' is concerned with approaches to widening access to postgraduate study and the embedding of a research culture in academic institutions on which such a culture has not been previously valued or encouraged. 'Management' deals with broader institutional and strategic issues, that might support the creation of quality research capacity.
