Last week I had the presentation of my research proposal. 6 months after starting research, all research students must present their research proposal in front of other research students and supervisours. It is very good opportunity to evaluate your research plan. Research method and the rationale of the research are the most concerns in this sessions which audiances ask you to clarify them. It is also a chance to communicate with other research students. It is interesting that most of research students in Australia are overseas-international- students. In Australia most of them are from China.
