Hello and welcome to R, D
00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:32,000
And the inbetweens, I'm your host, Kelly Preece, and every fortnight I talk to a different guest about researchers development and everything in between.
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:36,000
Hello and welcome to the latest episode of R, D and the In Betweens.
00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:44,000
I'm your host, Kelly Preece. And in this episode, I'm going to be talking to another of our postgraduate researchers, Tracey Warren.
00:00:44,000 --> 00:00:52,000
So Tracey contacted me after we released an episode of our doctoral college podcast, Beyond Your Research Degree,
00:00:52,000 --> 00:01:01,000
where I talked to James Alspp, who was a self-funded postgraduate research student and is now working as a secondary school teacher.
00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:11,000
Tracey got in contact because she was pleased to hear the experiences and the challenges of being a self-funded student articulated in this way.
00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:16,000
And so we decided we'd record an episode of the podcast about her experience of
00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:22,000
being not only a self-funded but international postgraduate research student.
00:01:22,000 --> 00:01:26,000
So, Tracey. Are you happy to introduce yourself? Okay.
00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:35,000
My name's Tracey Warren. I'm a self-funded international.
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:40,000
Research student on the EdD programme, which is a bit of a mouthful.
00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:46,000
I sometimes have to remember which part of that sentence to remember.
00:01:46,000 --> 00:01:51,000
So I'm self-funded, which means that I pay for it myself.
00:01:51,000 --> 00:01:56,000
I'm an international student, although you can probably tell I'm British.
00:01:56,000 --> 00:02:01,000
But the main reason I'm an international student is because I lived abroad for quite a long time.
00:02:01,000 --> 00:02:14,000
And when I started this research degree, I was living in the UAE in Abu Dhabi, and hence why I am classed as an international student.
00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:23,000
Why the EdD and why a research programme? Well, that's a, that'll probably take up a lot of the time, but
00:02:23,000 --> 00:02:28,000
Yes. It's something that has been on my mind for quite a long time.
00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:32,000
I'd say about 15, 20 years.
00:02:32,000 --> 00:02:39,000
So it's been something that's been part of at the back of my mind, thinking about doing.
00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:49,000
Whilst I've been having my very busy career and 15 years ago or thereabouts, I had had an offer to do research at Manchester.
00:02:49,000 --> 00:02:58,000
And then life comes along and a whammy. So I put it to one side and life carried on.
00:02:58,000 --> 00:03:07,000
And then in 2016, I decided, you know what, I need to revisit this.
00:03:07,000 --> 00:03:12,000
So I say, yes. The grand old age.
00:03:12,000 --> 00:03:21,000
I think at the time, 52, I decided that this is something I need to take up before I got too long in the tooth.
00:03:21,000 --> 00:03:30,000
Why a research degree? Because I've had a lot of experience in education, management, leadership.
00:03:30,000 --> 00:03:42,000
Special Needs Inclusion International UK that I just thought that I could bring something to the wider audience.
00:03:42,000 --> 00:03:48,000
And that's why I wanted to do something in research. At the time, I thought I knew what I wanted to do.
00:03:48,000 --> 00:03:52,000
But obviously, as time's gone on, it has become much more narrow.
00:03:52,000 --> 00:03:57,000
And I'm in the fourth year. So it's been quite a long journey for me, though.
00:03:57,000 --> 00:04:03,000
So for two years, I was at Exeter for February and then summer.
00:04:03,000 --> 00:04:16,000
So it's been quite a lengthy journey, but one that's not only been challenging, but also completely interesting and totally absorbing.
00:04:16,000 --> 00:04:19,000
That's fantastic. What an introduction.
00:04:19,000 --> 00:04:25,000
So you've spoken a little bit about why you wanted to do the research degree, but I wondered if you could talk about the other side of that,
00:04:25,000 --> 00:04:32,000
which is not just the decision to do the research degree, but to fund it yourself.
00:04:32,000 --> 00:04:49,000
Well, the self funding was a no brainer, really, living abroad meant that I had very little in the way of access to opportunities for funding.
00:04:49,000 --> 00:04:54,000
So not even from the company that I worked for would have even considered that.
00:04:54,000 --> 00:04:57,000
I mean, we are talking of when I think I first started out,
00:04:57,000 --> 00:05:03,000
it was about seven and a half thousand pounds a year and it's risen to about nine and a half.
00:05:03,000 --> 00:05:11,000
So it's a lot of money and therefore the decision to go down this path.
00:05:11,000 --> 00:05:18,000
I knew that I am a complete a finisher, so therefore I knew that I would get there.
00:05:18,000 --> 00:05:27,000
But the decision to actually go down the route of doing a research degree at that level of funding requirement,
00:05:27,000 --> 00:05:39,000
I sort of knew that by the end of it, with flights we travel with, accommodation, we are talking of over 4-5 years of an investment.
00:05:39,000 --> 00:05:45,000
And that's the word I would use of about fifty thousand pounds, which is a heck of a lot of money.
00:05:45,000 --> 00:05:51,000
And it was something that I knew from the start.
00:05:51,000 --> 00:05:56,000
And it's only now just becoming challenging because obviously I'm going to approach a fifth year.
00:05:56,000 --> 00:06:01,000
So the rationale was very, very clear.
00:06:01,000 --> 00:06:09,000
The reasoning for going self funding was very clear that I had no alternative.
00:06:09,000 --> 00:06:13,000
But also, I knew that I had to work to find that funding myself.
00:06:13,000 --> 00:06:26,000
So I did work full time for the first three years, as well as juggling everything else that I was required to do for the for the cause.
00:06:26,000 --> 00:06:35,000
So that was a leadership director position and trying to juggle a research.
00:06:35,000 --> 00:06:38,000
Part-Time Degree. So let's just pick up on that a minute.
00:06:38,000 --> 00:06:46,000
What is it like to undergo that juggling act of a full time job and a part time research degree?
00:06:46,000 --> 00:06:54,000
You have to be very organised and also almost blinkered because, for example,
00:06:54,000 --> 00:07:00,000
I also commuted between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which took out three hours a day minimum.
00:07:00,000 --> 00:07:06,000
So during the working week, it was very much blinkered work.
00:07:06,000 --> 00:07:10,000
And then weekends, it was very much focussing on. I've got two days.
00:07:10,000 --> 00:07:23,000
This is how many hours a week I could do. So it was being very organised about my timing and planning well ahead, like I'd write an action plan.
00:07:23,000 --> 00:07:30,000
And also, I had very little in the way of holidays. Living abroad is very different.
00:07:30,000 --> 00:07:35,000
You have very different terms and conditions to your employment.
00:07:35,000 --> 00:07:38,000
So I was only entitled to 22 days a year.
00:07:38,000 --> 00:07:51,000
So even coming back to Exeter. For the requirement for I think it's February or March, like a two day weekend and then the summer school.
00:07:51,000 --> 00:07:59,000
That was part of my leave. So for the first two years, it was hard work, knowing full well I had very little in the way of holiday.
00:07:59,000 --> 00:08:07,000
So being very well organised, well planned and focused was the only way to get through it.
00:08:07,000 --> 00:08:12,000
It was tough the first few years. Yes, incredibly tough.
00:08:12,000 --> 00:08:18,000
And the level of dedication it takes to undertake a research degree under any circumstances is huge.
00:08:18,000 --> 00:08:28,000
But to do that was working full time and knowing full well that you you're giving up your free time, you're giving up your holidays is colossal.
00:08:28,000 --> 00:08:41,000
But I think that's that's a level of. Not just focus, but eagerness to to make that leap, because I also had a lot of backing.
00:08:41,000 --> 00:08:51,000
You know, my husband who has been amazing because it meant me spending a lot of time in my study.
00:08:51,000 --> 00:09:02,000
So that in itself was a big decision at the start that we knew that I'd have to give up a lot of time.
00:09:02,000 --> 00:09:11,000
So the big holidays that we'd have, we reduced and the time going out at weekends was reduced.
00:09:11,000 --> 00:09:19,000
So there was like a not a written, like a not to a code,
00:09:19,000 --> 00:09:24,000
but we had the understanding that it was for a very short period of time and that so long as I
00:09:24,000 --> 00:09:32,000
was clear and dedicated that I could get through it with the support of my husband and my family.
00:09:32,000 --> 00:09:40,000
Absolutely. And a lot of the rhetoric around being a part time student is that it's not just an individual commitment.
00:09:40,000 --> 00:09:42,000
No, you have to have a level of support.
00:09:42,000 --> 00:09:52,000
Like, for example, there were times when I had to get assignments in that it was all day all nighters and he'd throw food in through the study with,
00:09:52,000 --> 00:10:04,000
you know, door like he or his food. So, yeah, I think it's the level of support you've got behind you that that helps.
00:10:04,000 --> 00:10:10,000
I know I, I couldn't have got to this stage without that level of support.
00:10:10,000 --> 00:10:20,000
What's it like being an international student? What is it like starting out at what is a very considerable distance from the university?
00:10:20,000 --> 00:10:28,000
There's two things, really, because I have relocated back to UK and September the 30th of last year.
00:10:28,000 --> 00:10:43,000
So I've got two perspectives. So as an international student, I think up to and I'd say up to almost COVID, I would say it's quite disembodied.
00:10:43,000 --> 00:10:57,000
I felt very much part of Exeter and being a student when I was there, especially during those spring and summer schools,
00:10:57,000 --> 00:11:07,000
I found them great because it was that opportunity to connect with like minded people, academics, my tutors, my supervisor.
00:11:07,000 --> 00:11:18,000
And therefore, it was it was quite it was quite absorbing being there during those times and all embracing because you
00:11:18,000 --> 00:11:26,000
met others in your cohort and mix with other people from different cohorts in different groupings.
00:11:26,000 --> 00:11:37,000
So it was an amazing experience, but very disembodied I would say because you'd fly in or I would fly in as an international student,
00:11:37,000 --> 00:11:43,000
arrive, check in, throw my stuff into my room and start reading and preparing.
00:11:43,000 --> 00:11:52,000
So those times are really great because I found as if I was part of the university when I was away.
00:11:52,000 --> 00:12:01,000
There was a little bit of disconnect, and I found that quite challenging because I actually quite like a spark with people.
00:12:01,000 --> 00:12:08,000
I like that engagement. So I had to then think about how I was actually going to gain that.
00:12:08,000 --> 00:12:17,000
So a group of us actually did like a WhatsApp group and and supported each other through the first couple of years.
00:12:17,000 --> 00:12:23,000
So that was nice because we actually kept in contact. But as an international student.
00:12:23,000 --> 00:12:29,000
It's part time and living abroad. There is that little bit of a disconnect,
00:12:29,000 --> 00:12:36,000
and I will then talk about what's happened recently because I would be constantly sending e-mails about what's happening.
00:12:36,000 --> 00:12:41,000
And I'd be really fascinated.
00:12:41,000 --> 00:12:50,000
Oh, I really want to join in and listen to that, or I'd love to be there during that time, or there will be some course that would be really useful.
00:12:50,000 --> 00:12:56,000
And when I'd ask for perhaps it could be put online or whether it could be recorded.
00:12:56,000 --> 00:13:11,000
That wasn't possible at that time. Which was. I'll say disappointing and disheartening, but I'll say since COVID it's amazing what's happened.
00:13:11,000 --> 00:13:19,000
I feel as if now, though the opportunity has been embraced by Exeter,
00:13:19,000 --> 00:13:30,000
and I feel that now they've recognised that the use of virtual online training access is possible.
00:13:30,000 --> 00:13:36,000
And I feel much more part of the university.
00:13:36,000 --> 00:13:45,000
Now more than I had before, because there's a lot more happening through zoom through teams.
00:13:45,000 --> 00:13:53,000
So there's much more engagement online and a good one, I think, is how we got in touch with the shut up and write sessions.
00:13:53,000 --> 00:14:03,000
I was fascinated. Oh, OK. I'd love that. But since they've gone online, I have actually been attending, I think, for the last five, six weeks.
00:14:03,000 --> 00:14:11,000
And to me, that has really helped my writing really helps with engagement with other students and understanding that I'm not the only one.
00:14:11,000 --> 00:14:17,000
I'm not actually alone. There's other people struggling as well and sharing those successes as well.
00:14:17,000 --> 00:14:21,000
Even if they're small, those type of sessions have been great.
00:14:21,000 --> 00:14:28,000
The fact that they're now online and I can access them. So I think there's almost been like a journey for Exeter.
00:14:28,000 --> 00:14:39,000
And for me, as well as a distance international student, because I had to find a way of being engaged, motivated.
00:14:39,000 --> 00:14:44,000
And I think it has been.
00:14:44,000 --> 00:14:50,000
Very. Upsetting about what's been happening in the world.
00:14:50,000 --> 00:14:55,000
And for certain people, it's been really distressing.
00:14:55,000 --> 00:15:01,000
But there's also been another side of seeing what opportunities have happened and taking note.
00:15:01,000 --> 00:15:09,000
And it's been amazing to see what's happened with the university about it now going much more online and giving greater,
00:15:09,000 --> 00:15:21,000
greater access to people like me. So I wonder, what have the other challenges been for you as a part time international self-funded student?
00:15:21,000 --> 00:15:30,000
We've talked about access to on campus support. But what else what else has been a real challenge or a barrier to you?
00:15:30,000 --> 00:15:37,000
That's quite tricky cause I always try and turn things around. I talked about the negative and I'm not one that always harps on the negative.
00:15:37,000 --> 00:15:49,000
I always try and find positives. I think if you got if you are doing a research degree or a degree part time with.
00:15:49,000 --> 00:15:54,000
You have to be well organised and planned.
00:15:54,000 --> 00:16:01,000
I think the best thing was actually being provided with all the dates of assignments so I could put them in my calendar.
00:16:01,000 --> 00:16:08,000
And I'm a very electronic person anyhow. So I had all of that down, all of my dates.
00:16:08,000 --> 00:16:19,000
It is about being organised and about developing that, developing a rapport with the other students in your group.
00:16:19,000 --> 00:16:24,000
Also with your supervisors. I think that was crucial for me,
00:16:24,000 --> 00:16:34,000
especially if the last two years whilst I'm in thesis stage developing that rapport has been crucial because there's times or I've been like.
00:16:34,000 --> 00:16:47,000
You know, I've got to write reports for my CEO. And having that relationship to be able to say I need that space, but also for my supervisor,
00:16:47,000 --> 00:16:53,000
Yeat but Tracey, you know, you've still got to keep within target dates and then and timescales.
00:16:53,000 --> 00:17:02,000
And for them to understand that you're in a different you have different priorities.
00:17:02,000 --> 00:17:06,000
So it's those priorities ebb and flow.
00:17:06,000 --> 00:17:10,000
So, for example, I knew that I needed to get an assignment done.
00:17:10,000 --> 00:17:15,000
So work didn't just take a backseat, it rolled along.
00:17:15,000 --> 00:17:19,000
But I was able to change my priorities during that period of time.
00:17:19,000 --> 00:17:26,000
So it's it's looking at your priorities being action, planning, being well organised.
00:17:26,000 --> 00:17:30,000
Knowing the library really well. Yeah.
00:17:30,000 --> 00:17:36,000
I'm a great reader and organising not just your time, but organising your files.
00:17:36,000 --> 00:17:40,000
That was something that I learnt.
00:17:40,000 --> 00:17:50,000
From doing an open university course was that, you know, to get your literature sorted out very quickly and a system for that.
00:17:50,000 --> 00:17:54,000
So I think that's fair. Any student. But for me, it was very much so.
00:17:54,000 --> 00:18:03,000
I could find it very quickly, both it in my literature organising my filing so that I could gain it easily.
00:18:03,000 --> 00:18:07,000
So, yeah, I'm being very adept.
00:18:07,000 --> 00:18:11,000
So, for example, I'm talking about I love to learn.
00:18:11,000 --> 00:18:16,000
So like youtubing, I've had to do use and NVivo this during my thesis.
00:18:16,000 --> 00:18:24,000
So I'm adept at looking at courses online to check out how to use things.
00:18:24,000 --> 00:18:31,000
So it begue being self disciplined as well as self-reliant.
00:18:31,000 --> 00:18:37,000
And that's part of being a researcher I think is actually eagerness to learn.
00:18:37,000 --> 00:18:41,000
And therefore, if you've got a problem, how to work around it.
00:18:41,000 --> 00:18:45,000
And I think that's those are the key things I've had to do, be independent, self-reliant.
00:18:45,000 --> 00:18:56,000
And a problem solver. Okay, so imagine for me that there's another Tracey out there who's about to embark on a research degree
00:18:56,000 --> 00:19:00,000
and they're going to be thinking about doing it part time.
00:19:00,000 --> 00:19:11,000
And as an international student and funding it themselves, what advice would you give them before they started?
00:19:11,000 --> 00:19:24,000
I knew would be tough, but actually that's the part that's been the toughest, is the writing up their thesis?
00:19:24,000 --> 00:19:31,000
I'm used to writing. I had to write reports for various people and thousands of words that I've never been a problem.
00:19:31,000 --> 00:19:38,000
But writing this thesis up has been the biggest challenge, whether it's the case of the blank screen.
00:19:38,000 --> 00:19:44,000
I'm not sure. But I am now at, say, two thirds through.
00:19:44,000 --> 00:19:52,000
I think if it was, the advice to myself would be.
00:19:52,000 --> 00:19:56,000
Think about the writing beforehand. Okay.
00:19:56,000 --> 00:20:08,000
I've taken a lot of time preparing all the data, collecting it, analysing it, but I really hadn't anticipated how challenging this writing had been.
00:20:08,000 --> 00:20:17,000
So I think if I'd have known that my my the advice myself for myself would be to go read many more ideas
00:20:17,000 --> 00:20:26,000
that I'd been published to go and have a look at some of those before I started writing.
00:20:26,000 --> 00:20:34,000
So that's one of the things I think also that the old adage of it's a marathon, not a sprint.
00:20:34,000 --> 00:20:40,000
That's never been me. I'm such a goal orientated person.
00:20:40,000 --> 00:20:45,000
Yeah, I could do this. I can do this. But actually, that has been one.
00:20:45,000 --> 00:20:48,000
Probably one of the best things that.
00:20:48,000 --> 00:20:56,000
I had to remind myself of especially the last couple of months, because I have found through writing since about March.
00:20:56,000 --> 00:21:06,000
And I think some of COVID, it has impacted on me. So I think keep reminding myself that you're in for this for the for the long term.
00:21:06,000 --> 00:21:10,000
So even if you only write 100 words a day, just do it.
00:21:10,000 --> 00:21:21,000
I think for me, that was the best thing, was keeping myself motivated and always give myself some space.
00:21:21,000 --> 00:21:26,000
I think those were the three. If I had to give myself that advice four years ago, that's when it would be.
00:21:26,000 --> 00:21:33,000
And be kinder to myself. Think sometimes we're not.
00:21:33,000 --> 00:21:40,000
I think sometimes we're not. We might be kinder to others, but we're not always kind of kinder to ourselves.
00:21:40,000 --> 00:21:45,000
That's a really poignant piece of advice and I think.
00:21:45,000 --> 00:21:52,000
So if that's what you need, if that's what you'd say to Tracey, what would you say to universities?
00:21:52,000 --> 00:22:03,000
What do they need to think about more in terms of the lived experience of being a part time international self-funded student?
00:22:03,000 --> 00:22:10,000
For me, I think the university needed to engage much more with their international students,
00:22:10,000 --> 00:22:20,000
not just send an email saying, oh, those these courses going on at the student, there's this seminar, this I just felt.
00:22:20,000 --> 00:22:28,000
Yeah, okay. But that actually doesn't help me. And I feel that they have they are making those changes,
00:22:28,000 --> 00:22:36,000
and I feel sad that it's taken some some of it has taken a pandemic for it to make that big change.
00:22:36,000 --> 00:22:41,000
Yeah, I completely get that, but I think, like you and I try and see the positives.
00:22:41,000 --> 00:22:51,000
And I felt really, really energised by some of the shifts and changes that have come about lately because of the pandemic and the shift online.
00:22:51,000 --> 00:22:57,000
And it's like so it's like when you're thinking about accessibility and inclusion, you don't make things accessible.
00:22:57,000 --> 00:23:02,000
You don't think about inclusivity just to support the needs of one person.
00:23:02,000 --> 00:23:11,000
You do it because actually providing things in multiple formats, in multiple kinds of engagement, it benefits the entire community.
00:23:11,000 --> 00:23:16,000
It benefits everybody, not just that individual person with specific needs.
00:23:16,000 --> 00:23:26,000
Oh, you said it so beautifully. Yeah, I'd say I'd say it's about inclusivity because that is actually part of my research is about inclusion.
00:23:26,000 --> 00:23:32,000
And to me, when I've been doing going through the process of a thesis and writing,
00:23:32,000 --> 00:23:37,000
some of it was quite poignant and it was a bit that's how I actually feel.
00:23:37,000 --> 00:23:45,000
And and being part of something and that's why I said the key words to me were about engaging,
00:23:45,000 --> 00:23:55,000
feeling a part of something, and therefore that helps you with motivation and inclusivity or diversity.
00:23:55,000 --> 00:23:57,000
It's amazing the world out there.
00:23:57,000 --> 00:24:07,000
And the university has the opportunity to engage much more with international students, which will then increase their diversity of ideas.
00:24:07,000 --> 00:24:14,000
And that in itself is is worthwhile because there's a lot happening out in the world.
00:24:14,000 --> 00:24:22,000
And it's just saying that there is a blinkered view or there has been because this is amazing research,
00:24:22,000 --> 00:24:28,000
some amazing ideas, but it's sad that it's it it it's inward looking.
00:24:28,000 --> 00:24:30,000
And I feel that that engagement,
00:24:30,000 --> 00:24:45,000
participation and idea of opening out and being much more inclusive would gather these ideas and increase participation by international students.
00:24:45,000 --> 00:24:51,000
I think what we've seen with the Shut up and write sessions is actually it doesn't need to be anything particularly complicated.
00:24:51,000 --> 00:24:55,000
Oh, absolutely. I love watching and see where everybody is.
00:24:55,000 --> 00:25:03,000
I mean, I can see the same the same group, core group comes in and that's great because that's that's probably the stage you're at.
00:25:03,000 --> 00:25:09,000
I mean, certainly for me, it's very right. So between nine and 12, I'm going to do this.
00:25:09,000 --> 00:25:14,000
And that's great. It helps to organise your day if you're that type of person. And it helps you to focus.
00:25:14,000 --> 00:25:20,000
But not only that, it also helps you to feel part of a community. And that's why I talk about engagement and participation.
00:25:20,000 --> 00:25:25,000
You need to feel part of a community, the community of Exeter,
00:25:25,000 --> 00:25:32,000
and that that should be what the that the university should be about of making people feel.
00:25:32,000 --> 00:25:37,000
Part of that community. Community of learners.
00:25:37,000 --> 00:25:45,000
Thanks so much to Tracy for taking the time to talk to me and making some really, really powerful and salient points about.
00:25:45,000 --> 00:25:51,000
About kindness to yourself and but also the importance of community of learners.
00:25:51,000 --> 00:25:54,000
And that seemed to be something that kept coming through.
00:25:54,000 --> 00:26:07,000
About the challenges of being that international part time self-funded student is how how you engage with and how you develop that sense of community.
00:26:07,000 --> 00:26:16,000
I was also really, really interested to hear her talk about the disembodied nature of being an international student,
00:26:16,000 --> 00:26:21,000
particularly somebody that used to research embodiment in in digital world.
00:26:21,000 --> 00:26:25,000
So that's something that to me sounds like a challenge.
00:26:25,000 --> 00:26:36,000
And I'm one I'm going to think a lot more about, about how we can bring embodiment back into the virtual world, into the online training that we do.
00:26:36,000 --> 00:27:08,476
