Abstract

The modern university is driven by an outcomes-based approach that stresses quality, impact and efficiency among its researchers. For newcomers still adapting to the alien lifestyle and rigorous demands of academia, such as Research Higher Degree (RHD) students, it is important that institutions are able to guide them adequately through the research journey, and to communicate not only what “research success” looks like, but also how to achieve it through information, partnerships and shared experiences. This chapter explores the important role of “communication as empowerment” in encouraging positive outcomes by enabling research students to complete their degrees with minimal problems and maximum satisfaction.
