What our students have to say

Saba Kiani

Doing a PhD in higher education at the University of Auckland was great for me. The opportunities I was provided with throughout my study were many. The academic environment developed by the School (Critical Studies in Faculty of Education and Social Work) enabled me to engage with internationally renowned researchers and academics, assisted me to become an autonomous researcher, and to continue my post-doctoral study abroad. Working in a shared office with several other PhD candidates also provided an informal support network. It was the intellectual space where we could share our work and be critical friends for one another. Dr Saba Kiani, Boğaziçi University (Istanbul), doctoral student in CRSTIE, 2010-2014.
