xperience. This initiative will operate in the same vein as the FUSE-IT
project for undergraduate students where the student experience for postgraduate students is looked at from new registration to graduation.
As with the FUSE-IT project, this initiative is a long term process of evolutionary improvement and expansion. Each success will lay the foundation for the next step forward. It is to be developmental for both students and staff with the aim of creating the ideal learning environment for which postgraduate research can be successfully carried out.
