PsyPAG Guide

Written for postgraduates by postgraduates, the PsyPAG Guide (second edition) is your guide to postgraduate study.

The aim of the guide is to provide support to psychology postgraduate students throughout their studies.

Although many general texts are available providing often PhD-specific support, we felt strongly that a psychology-specific resource for all postgraduate students was needed.

The content provided in this guide was inspired by feedback from you, our fellow postgraduates, so we hope that it is helpful.

The guide has four sections and focuses on the journey of postgraduate psychologists: Preparation, In the midst of it, Professional development and Personal development.

Articles are largely written by psychology postgraduates, for psychology postgraduates. However, we have also included a range of post-doctoral level authors, to provide a range of experience.

We would love to hear your thoughts.

Please contact our Managing Editor, tweet @PsyPAG or contact PsyPAG on Facebook to let us know what you think.
